Kia ora koutou College Sport Auckland Principals,
Following the Government’s update which took place at 1.00PM today, I wish to inform you that all College Sport events and activities scheduled for this weekend will not take place. Like you, we had hoped that the Ministry of Health may have been in a position to advise us that Auckland would shift back to Alert Level 1 or 2 at midnight tomorrow, however, to date that has not been possible. Given this, we can but assume that Auckland will remain at Alert Level 3 over the weekend and consequently, school sport would not possible due to the Government’s restrictions on gathering sizes.
Once it is safe to do so we will work to reschedule as many events and activities as is practical. Rest assured, College Sport Auckland has waited as long as is practical to make this decision.
To reiterate, as we do not have clarity from the Government regarding any extension or upgrade of the current alert level, the most responsible option is for College Sport to make this announcement now, as we respect schools need time to get students organised for weekend sport. We also understand this would be a more complex exercise to execute while students are not permitted onto your respective campuses.
Along with the seriousness with which you take the well-being of the students in your care, College Sport Auckland also treats the welfare and safety of students representing their schools as a priority. Sadly, on this occasion it means we must postpone all events and activities this weekend.
This information will be posted on our website and social media platforms.
A further update will be sent on Monday.
All College Sport Auckland staff will remain working from working from home. They can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
