Auckland primary schools could be resuming face to face teaching in mid-November the government has announced today.

Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins said the indicative date for students to return to primary schools and kura is 15 November.

However, he did stress that this could change, and more work needed to be done for years 9 and 10.

He said that schools look to developing a roster system and maximising time outdoors. Year groups may end up attending on different days to keep numbers down.

Hipkins said decisions about sending some pupils back to school were among some of the “toughest he has had to make as a minister”.
