Primary ITO is following the government traffic light settings to ensure we continue to protect the safety of everyone.
Below is some more specific information on how we’re working under the "Orange" settings.
If you have any queries, please contact us.
We are ensuring our Primary ITO staff are following all the government guidelines for the Orange setting. For staff working onsite at other businesses, this means they’ll also be following those businesses’ conditions – such as requiring My Vaccine Passes or not visiting the premises.
We are committed to supporting the learning of everyone enrolled with Primary ITO. Where we hold class days, learners are asked to follow the guidelines depending on where they are in the country.
We understand that Covid-19 and vaccinations are highly personal issues for some people. Some of the things we pride ourselves on as an organisation are our values around manaakitanga, whanaungatanga and mana motuhake. That means looking after our learners’ best interests, taking care of the relationships and providing great service. It’s important that we hold true to these at what is a challenging time for people making decisions.
To everybody we work with, kia ora anō tātou – best wishes and stay well.
