To leave school during the day we require notification from your parent/caregiver. This can be a phone call, email or note.

Absentee notifications should be submitted as early as possible.

If you are feeling unwell or have had an accident or suffered an injury, you must see a nurse in the first instance.

You will need a note from your teacher if you need to see the nurse during class time.

We have two nurses, a part-time physiotherapist, and counsellors located in Waiora (Student Services Centre), who will contact parents/caregivers if deemed necessary. Students should not contact their parents directly during class time.

Longer planned absences  (more than three days),should be advised in advance by parents/caregivers to a student’s Head of House, with the admin office copied into notifications.  For absences in excess of 5 days a request in writing must also be submitted to the principal.

We may request a medical certificate for absences due to sickness or injury which exceed 3 days.

The school has a mobile app for news and events, daily notices and other important school messages.  Use the app to notify us of absences, access the parent/student portal and check key dates.  Receive alert messaages instantly for your chosen groups.  See here on how to download the app.

We have an expectation that students/ākonga have their phones in their bags at all times, if they have it with them at school. If you need to urgently contact students/ākonga please ring the school office or email your child on their school e-mail address.
