Covid-19: Term four looking different across NZ

From Morning Report, 7:41 am on 18 October 2021

The new school term starts today, but the experience will be very different for pupils in the south compared with the north.

Nearly 400,000 children in Auckland, Northland and Waikato are starting the final school term of the year learning from home.

Schools in the three regions are remote learning because they are still in alert level 3.

Auckland's Chapel Downs Primary School principal Vaughan Van Rensburg and Christchurch's Somerfield School principal Denise Torrey spoke to Corin Dann.
