Nelson College continues to follow Ministry of Education & Ministry of Health advice around raising personal hygiene awareness and managing the return of all our students for the new school year.

 We ask that the parents/caregivers of any students who have travelled to China during the holidays, or who have been in close contact with someone confirmed with the virus, delay the start of their school year by 14 days. Students who return will do so in keeping with Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education guidelines.

Anyone concerned is advised to contact Healthline on 0800 611 116 or their GP, or refer to the Ministry of Education website –
