From First Up, 5:35 am on 21 October 2021

From next Tuesday high school students in years 11-13 who live in alert level 3 areas will be able return to the classroom. Students who return will need to wear a mask, and staff and volunteers working on site will need a negative test before attending. Exams will proceed in alert level 3 areas with students eligible for "unexpected event" grades. To talk about what this all means for students and staff, our reporter Ella Stewart spoke with Manurewa High School Principal Pete Jones.
