School Expectations


School Uniform:

We want our students to wear our uniform correctly and with pride. 

Hoodies are not part of our uniform and are not to be worn to school. 

Students are allowed to wear 2 stud earrings in each ear and hoop earrings need to be removed whilst at school.

On Wednesday students who are participating in sport are allowed to wear school Physical Education Uniform to school. 

Blazers, school shirts or the red shell jacket are to be worn outside of school - not the school cardigan. 


Everyday school starts at 8.30 am. 

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday we start with Ako time. Wednesday and Friday students head straight to period 1. Students are expected to be on school grounds by 8.25 am. 

As a school, we want to improve our overall standards. Our school value of Rangatiratanga is about finding pride in oneself and what we do at school. Being on time and ready to learn is important and if mastered at school can set the foundations for future success. We do appreciate that sometimes things happen. If your child is going to be late for a legitimate reason, then we require a message to be sent to the attendance officer by 9.00 am of that day. You can
