A message to our valued community:

Firstly, congratulations – thanks to your efforts, Aotearoa New Zealand has reached Alert Level 2. An incredible effort!

Safety and caution are still very important, and this has implications for not only REAP Wairarapa but all of the businesses operating from REAP House. With that in mind, we are announcing that REAP House will remain closed to the public during Alert Level 2.

This means that no classes will be running from REAP House during this time, and that we will not be taking bookings for rooms.

Visitors will still be allowed on an appointment-only basis, and there will be strict rules in place to do with social distancing, appointment spacing, health and contact tracing requirements.

If you need to make an appointment with one of the businesses operating at REAP House, contact that business directly. For an appointment with a REAP Wairarapa staff member, please contact 0800 WAIREAP.

We appreciate that this may be disappointing news for those looking forward to resuming or beginning their learning journeys, but our priority must be the health and safety of our community. We are working hard to prepare ourselves for reopening when the time is right.

Keep an eye on our website and Facebook pages for further announcements. In the meantime, stay safe, enjoy returning to work and school, and take time to catch up with family and friends.

We will see you soon!
