Information for visitors and suppliers to Te Wānanga o Raukawa

Updated 18 May 2020

We want to reassure you that Te Wānanga o Raukawa is dedicated to actively monitoring the covid-19 situation and managing the impact for our students, staff and suppliers. You can follow our website regularly for relevant information about Covid‑19.

On Monday 18 May 2020, Te Wānanga o Raukawa will move to an  alert Level 2 status. The Ōtaki campus will re-open with restrictions. All visitors must register and sign in and sign out with Kaitiaki or reception. Registered users of the Ōtaki campus can utilise the 'Covid-19 Check-in' module in the Te Wānanga o Raukawa app (download SchoolAppsNZ and add Te Wānanga o Raukawa).

There are several key messages Te Wānanga o Raukawa is communicating with stakeholders to help stop the spread of diseases like Covid‑19:

  • Our Emergency Response Team (ERT), Te Ohu Haumaru, continues to meet daily to prepare and plan alongside senior management and Te Mana Whakahaere.
  • Call first if you need to come on to the Ōtaki campus or to our sites at Manukau and Turanga (Gisborne).
  • All our residential seminars and daily classes for huringa 1 (semester 1) will be delivered online.
  • From Monday 18 May, a pre-booking system is available for Ngā Purapura gym members and students who want to visit the library.
  • Avoid close contact with people with cold or flu‑like illnesses.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing.
  • Do not go out in public if you have been unwell.
  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with water and soap and dry them thoroughly before eating or handling food, after using the toilet, after coughing, sneezing, blowing your nose, or wiping someone else’s, and after caring for sick people.

We understand the change to our delivery method and access to our campus and sites may impact on our suppliers, but we see this as a necessary interim measure to assist with the containment.  One of our staff will be in touch with you if this affects you directly.

We’re grateful for your cooperation and will keep you informed if the situation changes. We recognise that these are unsettling times, and we want you to know that the safety of our students, visitors and staff are our priority.  

Te Wānanga o Raukawa will continue to follow the lead of the Ministry of Health and implement our own plans to support our community.
