Hui – Fridays

Whole School Hui are held fortnightly on a Friday. Students run these assemblies and they are a positive way to end our week and celebrate the learning that has taken place. Student of the week, Value certificates & Pipi awards are presented.

We warmly welcome our families to join us.

Attendance & Punctuality

While the law does not require enrolment until the age of six once a child is enrolled, regular attendance is expected. Parents are responsible for ensuring their child attends school regularly and is on time.

Lack of attendance and late arrivals disrupt your child’s academic progress. If students are to be absent or late, please ensure they sign in at the office before going to class otherwise your child will be marked absent with no explanation. The Education Act requires a written note for all absences.

Collecting Children From School

We do ask that you exercise caution when picking up children from school. Please park on the school side of the road but away from the bus bay. Children being picked up will not be released until after the buses have departed. The school requires confirmation of any changes to travelling arrangements, a phone call, email or note before 12:00pm.


We have an upgraded fence around the perimeter of the school. This fence needs to be kept closed during the school day for Health and Safety concerns. We would appreciate the gate being kept secure and apologise for any inconvenience.

Health and Immunisation

As from January 2000, the Ministry of Education required schools to keep a record of immunisation for all students. Please ensure you have the required documentation and record of any childhood illnesses which may provide auto-immunity when you enrol your child. We also require their full Birth Certificate on enrolment.

Lost Property

It is your responsibility to ensure your children’s clothes, shoes, etc. are clearly named. It is our children’s responsibility to keep track of their belongings. They are encouraged, by staff, to continually check for clothing, shoes, etc.

Reporting to Parents

Parents are always welcome to contact the school to arrange an appointment to discuss aspects of the school life of their child(ren). Teacher | Student | Parent conferences are at the beginning of Term 3 and written reports go out in Term 2 and 4.


While we try to keep the amount of stationery to a minimum, your child will require stationery. During the first week a stationery requirement list will be sent home. Where possible the school endeavours to keep costs very competitive with commercial outlets, however, please be aware that some of the stationery supplies are available from the school but when you purchase from the school it must be paid for before they will be issued.

Taking Children from School

If it becomes necessary for a child to be removed from school during school hours, parents are asked to contact the office before school starts. Children are not to be released early from classrooms without specific approval from the Principal.
