ALERT Level 2 – with a new look:
Please find below details of how Level 2 restrictions will look at school:
- In some facets of our day to day lives we are now being mandated or advised to wear masks. At school, it is an individual’s choice to wear face coverings and as a School community we will respect and support the right to make this choice.
- Students may wear face coverings on ASTN/ rural school buses if they choose to do so but again this is a matter of individual choice. However students travelling on MyWay buses MUST wear masks and need to bear in mind that there will be reduced capacity on these buses.
- Schools are exempt from the ‘gatherings’ mandate as we are able to effectively contact trace staff and students. However we will be avoiding large full school gatherings; that means no Assemblies and smaller Chapel services.
- There is a limit on the numbers allowed in the Dining Room to 50 at one time. Only Boarders will be able to enter the Dining Room and will be asked to collect their food and if possible eat it outside. Daygirls can still purchase food but must do so from the ‘Craighead Cafe’ in the foyer of the Dining Room opposite the Len Home entrance.
- Students and staff do not need to sign in when arriving at school as our normal procedures for attendance and leaving the school grounds adequately contact trace. A reminder that if you are leaving the school grounds during the normal school day you must sign out using the QR code in the Office.
- Staff will ensure that inside areas are well ventilated, often. Windows in classrooms are opened at the end of the period (leaving them open for interval and lunch) and opened in common rooms at the end of interval and lunchtime.
- To this end, all students are encouraged to be outside at interval and lunchtime, weather permitting. Duty teachers will ensure this occurs and senior students are asked to role model this in terms of using their common rooms.
- Remember that if you feel sick, stay at home.
- Remember basic etiquette:
– regularly wash or sanitise your hands
– cough and/or sneeze into your elbow
– if you haven’t already, download the COVID 10 App to your phone !!

Principal Ms Lindy Graham
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. Our policy is an open door for all – entry to the school is not based on prior academic, cultural or sporting performance – we believe that in the Craighead environment, all students have the capacity to find their strengths and excel. Craighead has a reputation for lifting the performance of its students – in all activities, both in and our of the classroom. We believe many students have unrealized potential and we enjoy helping each girl discover her capabilities. There are no assumptions or limitations. Consequently, achievements are high – our NCEA results rank us with the best in the country, well above the national averages and our students feature regularly in a number of cultural and sporting activities at national level. Do please come and have a look for yourself – you will be most welcome. I look forward to meeting you soon.
