classroom but you do need to leave by 8.45am.

Children settle quicker with peers and teacher and soon become involved in the dynamics of class time.

When is it?

The children sit to eat their morning tea and then have free time to play.


10.35am – 11am.

Lunchtime is at 12.30pm – the children eat their lunch sitting with their class for 15 minutes, then have time to play.


What should my child wear to school?


We have a school uniform and all students are required to wear this daily.  The uniform shop is located next to Room 6 and is open Monday mornings from 8.30-9am.  Outside these times orders can be placed at the office.  School Uniforms are now available for purchase from The Warehouse, Takanini (our school  Uniform Shop will close later this year)

Shoes are required – these must be black, leather look with socks or black *sandals in the summer months.

School hats are compulsory in Terms 1 & 4. (will continue to be available for purchase from the School Office)

The school accepts no responsibility for the safety of valuable articles at school.

Where do I buy the school stationery from?


Stationery for each year group and can be ordered on line or purchased at Warehouse Stationery.  New Entrant Stationery packs can be purchased during the year from the school office.

We do have some stationery in the school office if you need items throughout the year.


What should I do if I need to leave a message for my child, or deliver lunches?






If the event of you running late we would recommend you “arrange a place to meet” with your child.

To leave an urgent message, either phone the office (before 2.30pm) or call in at the office and the office staff will endeavour to pass the message on for you.

Please drop lunches, and any other items you want to pass on to your child, at the office and we will notify your child to collect them.

When will my child know about their class for next year? All students are informed on the last day of the school year and have an opportunity to visit that class and meet their new teacher for the next year.
