Covid-19 Update 17th August 2021

Kia ora koutou

As you will all most likely be aware, Auckland (and the rest of NZ!) is moving to Covid Alert Level 4 at midnight Tuesday 17 August, meaning that our Carey campus will be closed. All classes from Wednesday 18 August will move fully online via Zoom. We are as disappointed as you no doubt are for this unexpected change, however we are confident that God has all of this in His hands! Please note the following changes and arrangements for what Carey activities will look like under Alert Level 4.


All important Covid-19 related student messages will be posted to the CareyOnline homepage. Please check this page regularly for the latest information – check your notification preferences (under your Preferences in your CareyOnline profile) if you would like (or would NOT like) these messages to be emailed to you.  Key information will also be sent to you via email.

Classes and teaching:

All classes will move fully online, and will be meeting online via Zoom. Download and install the Zoom App onto your phone or laptop. Classes will run at the scheduled time in the published timetable. Go to your CareyOnline courses – Course Information for the specific link to the Zoom classes.  All sessions will be recorded and uploaded into CareyOnline as normal. Contact your teacher if you have any questions.
Details on block course arrangements will be posted as soon as possible.

General Support and Technology help:
