Welcome to 2021 Notices

From Student Link reps

Kia ora TLC staff and students. As many of you know a couple weeks ago we lost a beloved member of our TLC family Tom Shaw. His passing has been a huge shock to us all and as we are filled with sadness for Tom and his family we would like to provide a time to come together as a school to celebrate his life.
We are running a shared lunch tomorrow (Tuesday) at 12:30pm to commemorate Tom and share kai and stories. It is open to everyone, even if you didn't know him very well you are most welcome to come along to pay your respects. Please bring a plate, the more the better - Tom would've loved to have a feast thrown in his honour.
In terms of venue it will be held in the staff room on the top floor of the Grange building. I will be waiting in the Grange building foyer to direct people upstairs.
I hope to see you all there.

Kia ora. We have now received details of the Ministry of Education’s guidelines for best practice under the Delta 2 alert level. There are a couple of details which the school will need to work on (see the italicised script below) , however the guiding principles are the same as noted in the earlier email.

Distance delivery will continue as usual.
For onsite students:
Most mains classes will restart on Thursday and continue on Friday. A couple of classes may not be able to run due to an inability to maintain a 1-metre social distance between people. Tutors who are unable to operate safely onsite will continue with online delivery of classes. Your tutor will contact you about this if it applies to their class. Some classes may be colder than usual to increase ventilation so please make sure you are warmly dressed if the weather is cold.
All block classes are running onsite next week. To ensure effective and safe learning opportunities, class sizes may not be running at maximum.
If you are registered for a class but are not able to attend onsite, please contact your tutor and programme support about the possibility of online delivery. Please be aware that it may not be possible to replicate the same studio experience due to limitations of equipment and resources. Alternative activities may be suggested to enable you to continue working towards meeting programme requirements.
A few things to keep in mind please:
  • If you are feeling unwell or have a cold – please stay at home and call your doctor or Healthline on 0800 611 116
  • We are asking all staff and students to follow the School Agreement to look after each other and wear a mask when onsite. Mask wearing in confined spaces is strongly recommended in the MOE guidelines
  • Use the QR codes to sign into each area you enter
  • Where possible, enter and exit from different doors
  • Sanitise shared equipment 
  • Sanitise and clean your working area before you leave at the end of the day

Kia ora. We have been waiting to hear details of the Ministry of Education’s guidelines for best practice under the Delta 2 alert level. We're still waiting for that update, but we thought it might be useful to give you a brief heads up about what is planned once onsite classes resume later this week.
For DD students:
Distance delivery will continue as usual.

Kia ora.

 As you no doubt are aware, all of New Zealand outside of the Auckland/Northland region is moving to Alert Level 3 as of Wed 1st September. We will remain at this level for one week with a review on the 6th of September.

 Under Alert level 3, online programme delivery will continue as usual for distance delivery students.

 We will also need to continue online delivery to onsite students during level 3, as the restrictions on onsite delivery offer too many challenges. For example, classes would need to be in isolated bubbles, could only be for a two hour duration and would be limited to a maximum of 9 students, plus a tutor. Each studio would then need to have a ‘deep clean’.

 However, you will be able to come onsite to collect materials and work in progress.

 Here’s how you can do this:

·  Contact Programme Support ps@tlc.ac.nz the day before you plan to come onsite and liaise with them as to when it would be best to do so. John Davies (caretaker) will meet you at Reception at the prearranged time

·  If you wish to purchase items from the shop you can either order online and have the order couriered out to you, or you can ‘click and collect’ - that is, order online and pick it up yourself. To ‘click and collect’ go online, make and pay for your order, contact and arrange a collection time with Programme Support and come onsite and pick it up from outside Reception

 Please make sure you:

·  Do not come onsite if you have any flu-like symptoms 

·  Are wearing a mask 

·  Maintain a social distance of 2 metres apart outside and 1 metre inside

·  Sanitise your hands on entry to buildings

·  Don’t touch things you don’t need to, such as banisters, etc.

·  Scan in using the QR code (or sign in using the visitor sheet)

·  Spend only as much time onsite as needed

·  Email Programme Support if you are unable to make your appointment

 If you need help:

If you do not hear from your tutor in relation to online delivery options, please contact Programme Support – there may well be technical issues which need sorting

 We understand that lockdown creates its own pressures and issues. If you need someone to talk to, please don’t hesitate to contact Lydia (Learning Support l.grove@tlc.ac, or Cat and Donna (Programme Support ps@tlc.ac.nz)

 Please remember – look after yourself and those in your bubble. If you need help – please get in touch.

Nga mihi

 Dennis - for the Academic Board

Term 4 classes are open for registration.
 Registration closes on Thursday 9th September.

Kia ora koutou
The Learning Connexion will be be closed for the rest of the week, at this stage.
We will keep you updated as we get more information to hand.
If you have an on-site class during this time, you can expect to have your tutor contact you before the class either by email and/or via Zoom to make arrangements for you to continue your creative practice.
You may need to adapt what you are able to do depending on the resources you have at home and the project you may be working on. Best to have a chat with your tutor about possible options.
Please make sure you document your work and upload it to your Workroom.
For DD students – it’s definitely a matter of business as usual. Your mentors will be working from home and continuing their programme delivery as per usual.
We will also share updates on our website.
If you have any questions or concerns please email them to ps@tlc.ac.nz and someone will reply to you as soon as they can.
Take care of yourselves

Hi all.
By now you're probably aware that we are in a Covid alert level 2 situation. You can check the current status from the links below (i.e. Ministry of Health & Ministry of Education).
The TLC Emergency Response Team has met to plan the short and long term actions - we're working by the Pandemic Plan which is linked below.
At this stage, there is no reason to close the school, however we will constantly assess and update you on a regular basis.
Guidelines
• If you feel unwell, stay home and self-isolate, call your doctor or Healthline on 0800 358-5453 for advice about getting tested. Stay at home if you are sick. Wash your hands and maintain good hygiene.
• Maintain social distancing (1m)
• Wearing facemasks is encouraged, but is not obligatory
If you have any concerns or have questions relating to study, please contact programme support (ps.tlc.ac.nz).
Take care of yourselves. </body></html>
