We are committed to doing all we can to protect the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, contractors, parent volunteers and visitors to our site and our programmes.
At Whenua Iti Outdoors we take our role in the response and management of the NZ Government's Covid-19 Response Plan very seriously. This includes both the existing COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021 and the more recently announced New Zealand Covid-19 Protection Framework. Whilst we acknowledge there is still some uncertainty of how the New Zealand Covid-19 Protection Framework will apply across sectors of our community, we look to the intent of the Health Order and the Protection Framework to inform our decision making. We will err on the side of caution when making any decision about factors that may present risk to anyone working with or alongside Whenua Iti Outdoors.
Whenua Iti Outdoors requires any staff member, contractor, teacher, parent, visitor, and volunteer who is aged 18 and over, and who may directly interact with student groups at any programme delivery site, to provide evidence that they have received at least the first Covid-19 vaccination. We will be asking all visiting school and community groups with accompanying adult helpers to provide Whenua Iti Outdoors with confirmation that all the adults attending have provided evidence that they have received at least the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination to the school. Any adult participating or observing on a non-school or community programme will be asked to provide evidence that they have received at least the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination directly to Whenua Iti Outdoors.
