Kia ora koutou,
Today our Prime Minister confirmed that Auckland will continue in Covid-19 Alert Level 4 and the rest of New Zealand in (Delta) Level 2 until at least Tuesday 21 September.
For BTI, this means we will continue to teach some classes onsite and some online, as we have started today, with Level 2 restrictions. We must continue to wear masks on campus in shared spaces, maintain at least 1 metre distance, and stay home if unwell or we need to self isolate. See our recent blog post for more details of Level 2 on campus.
For those of our community who are in Auckland, we are very grateful for your mahi at Level 4, keeping us all safe and stopping the spread of the virus. Thank you.
I'd like to acknowledge that many of us might be thinking, " Kua pau te hau / I’m exhausted" right now. It is hard to juggle the needs of our whānau, our communities, and especially our own needs during this time. Please reach out, to friends or our staff, or check in with each other. We can only get through this by supporting one another, building each other up, and in doing so we show God's love in practical and real ways.
Ma te Atua tātou e manaaki, In God we trust,
Dr Andrew Butcher,
Te Taiurungi/ Principal
