Kia ora Crawshaw School community, Information supplied to us from the Ministry of Education... When is sick, sick? The messaging remains clear – that if you are feeling unwell please stay home, and the same goes for children and young people. However at the tail end of a cold, there will be runny noses and probably some coughing. This might be worrying for some people who are being vigilant about their own and others’ health. A diagram has been developed by Dr Siouxsie Wiles to assist you when considering symptoms (sent to us by a teacher who found it useful). What it tells us is: A dry cough and a high temperature are common to both flu and COVID-19 Sneezing is not a symptom of COVID-19, however if someone has COVID-19, then sneezing can spread droplets containing the virus.
Crawshaw School is very much a neighbourhood school. We wish to be an integral part of the community and to reflect and enhance the educational aspirations of the parents and caregivers in our community.
We are a full primary school (Y0-8) situated in the North-west corner of Hamilton City, New Zealand. We have 14 classes catering for approximately 300, mainly local students and both English and Maori enrichment classes are offered. Two satellite classes from Hamilton North School are integrated into the school. We also have a school chaplain, Resource Teachers of Learning and Behaviour, (RTLB), a Social Worker in Schools, (SWIS), a dental clinic on site and a close relationship with Hamilton City Council Neighbourhood Advisors and our School Community Constable. Two local churches, St Marks and North West Baptist, give support to the school.
We are a PB4L (Positive Behaviour for Learning) school and we want every student to SOAR (Be Successful, Be Outstanding, Be Adaptable and Be Resilient). Please feel free to make an appointment with the Principal, who will be only too pleased to share our story with you and show you around our wonderful Kura.
Exciting news!! We have a new School APP - Tītiro mai whānau!
