CoVID Alert Level 2 –


Uniform Committee – Shop etiquette in Alert Level 2:  ⇒

Message emailed to all Craighead families, staff and community:
As of midday today as you will be aware, we go back into Alert Level 2. For Craighead this means that the School and Boarding House are open and classes will continue as usual.

At Level 2, almost all children and young people can continue to attend early learning services, schools and kura onsite. The only exceptions are children or young people who are sick and have any COVID-19 symptoms, are in isolation, or are awaiting the result of a test.

Strong public health control measures will be in place Craighead, including learners and staff staying home if they are sick, contact tracing, and safe hygiene requirements. Hand sanitiser is available for all staff and students to use and the practice of appropriate personal hygiene will be expected from everyone. Alert Level 2 is all about being safe and sensible and this is the approach that we are using here at Craighead.

As further guidance on the implementation of public health control measures at Alert Level 2 becomes available we will contact you via email, Skool Loop and the school website www.craighead.schoool.nz The Ministry of Education  will be contacting schools later today and we will advise of any additional information should this be necessary.

Thank you for your support and should you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.

In Level 2 the Uniform shop will be restricting entry to one family at a time in order to keep the 2m distance from Friday 14th August until we return to Level 1.
Please consider the online ordering system through our School website Uniform Page.

We are a State-Integrated Anglican Year 7-13 Boarding and Day school for girls, situated in Timaru, South Canterbury.

Welcome to our website! We are very excited to share our vision with you. Although no website can give a complete picture, we hope that it will convey a sense of the spirit of this wonderful school. Craighead is committed to the pursuit of excellence in all fields of endeavour (spiritual, academic, physical and cultural), with emphasis on the development of each girl within a caring, Christian family atmosphere so that each is well-educated, well-adjusted, responsible, confident and capable of contributing to society. It is who we are and what we do that makes us different from other schools in South Canterbury. As a school of Special Character, we focus on the needs and potential of each girl. Craighead is a unique place, with a distinctively warm and friendly family atmosphere which you will notice immediately when you visit our lovely campus. It is such a privilege to lead Craighead.  Do please come and have a look for yourself – you will be most welcome. I look forward to meeting you soon.
