A primary principal is sceptical over Government's hopes for a staged re-entry for younger students. 

November 15's been pencilled in as a tentative date. 

The Ministry of Education's now working with the sector on how to make it happen, including possible outdoor learning and a combined in-class and at-home model. 

South Auckland Primary School principal, Karl Vasau told Heather du Plessis-Allan he has no faith in a staged approach. 

“It will work in maybe Year 9 and 10, which are very different, but not in the primary school sector I just cannot see that working at all.”
