UNIFORM EXCHANGE OFFICE
Parents/Caregivers/Whanau: there is no need to write a note to excuse the lack of uniform, we are here to help you out when the washing just doesn’t get dry in time for school.
We make sure that any student that needs to borrow a spare t-shirt, pants, jacket, jersey, skirt, shoes and socks can do so.
Every morning the Uniform Exchange will be available for students to hand over their mufti item and swap it for a school uniform item. At the end of the day, they just hand over their borrowed uniform piece to get their own gear back. We will wash and dry all uniforms daily, ready for the next day.
We do have limited supply, so if you have any spare uniform items – please donate them to the front office. We are especially in need of school sweatshirts and/or black polar fleece jerseys for winter.

Under the new Government school donations scheme, we have decided to "Opt In" which means that the Government will pay the school $150 per student instead of whanau having to pay school fees/donations.
Under this scheme;
The board of trustees cannot ask you to make a donation unless it is for an overnight school camp – and then you can choose if you want to pay none, some or all of the donation. If you choose not to make a donation, your child cannot be stopped from attending a camp if it is part of the school’s core learning programme (curriculum).
You cannot be asked to make either a general or specific donation e.g. a donation for a day trip to a museum or a field trip to a hiking track
Please note things we can ask for payment...
For any extra-curricular activity where the student has a choice of attendance and it does not relate to the curriculum/academic learning. For example ski camp, sports trip, whanau house trips, opera trip etc.
Take-home course materials where parents have agreed to purchase i.e. homework books.
Basic school stationery
