Kia ora koutou,
You are all likely aware of our upcoming semester one Carey Orientation on Tuesday 1 March. Normally, we specifically invite returning students to join at Orientation us to help welcome our new students. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have made the difficult decision to limit attendance to new students only. Due to the recent surge in Omicron cases, this change is necessary to protect the health and safety of our students and staff.
Unless you have a specific, pre-arranged role on the day, we ask that you stay at home and do not come on campus for Orientation on Tuesday. We are, however, looking forward to welcoming you all back on campus from Monday 7 March!
We are continuing to make every effort possible to foster vibrant community life this year and, with great anticipation, looking forward to a successful academic year. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we seek to respond with wisdom each day.
The Carey team
