School holidays are over but not everyone is heading back to a classroom.
It's the first day of term four, with students in Tāmaki Makaurau continuing with remote learning.
Papatoetoe High School Principal Vaughan Couillault told Mike Hosking student engagement is at about 50 percent.
"That doesn't mean that students aren't doing any work, what it means is the Zooms aren't switching them on. They're not getting on to those, which is why we need to get them back to school as quick as we possibly can."
