About Rosehill Intermediate

Kia Ora, Talofa Lava, Malo e lelei, hwan-yeong, Bula Vinaka, Āpaka svāgata hai

A very warm welcome to Rosehill Intermediate School.  This website introduces you to our school and the hopes and aspirations we have for your child.

Our school has unique characteristics and strengths that are particularly appropriate for meeting the needs of emerging adolescents.  The focus of each programme offered at RIS acknowledges the special nature of the age group we work with.  Children of this age are capable of taking a leading role in their learning; they are capable of making decisions and realising consequences.


Kia ora koutou

It was a big relief to move back to Alert Level 2. Welcome back to all our students and staff!

Thank you once more to our parents and caregivers for the support and resilience you have shown through Alert Level 3.

Strong vigilance, good hygiene practices, coupled with the hard work our health authorities are doing to identify and support any confirmed cases and their close contacts remain important for all of us.

Just a reminder that while everyone is onsite at Alert Level 2, we must adhere to key health measures including:

Good hand hygiene and cough and sneeze etiquette
● Staying away if sick
● Keeping the appropriate physical distance from others (in class this means no touching each other and keeping out of breathing distance)
● Cleaning and disinfecting our high touch surfaces daily
● Displaying QR code posters at our entrances and encouraging all of our community to download the NZ COVID Tracer App and use it if they come onsite
● Keeping a visitor register for anyone who cannot use the app and for other visitors who come onsite for a period of time.

We know all these things will help to keep our community as safe as possible. Because of these measures, your child does not need to wear a face covering while at school. We will of course support them should they choose to do so.
However all students using public transport are required to wear a facemask.

For those of you who might be finding things more difficult than usual, a reminder that there is a large range of support available for businesses and the community. We encourage you to go to covid19.govt.nz for more information.
Our school counsellors Julie Hyland and Louise Belcher are available to support our students and families at jhyland@rosehill.org.nz or lbelcher@rosehill.org.nz
