While we do not have a formal uniform, students are expected to be clean and tidy and wearing suitable clothing for learning at school.
Blue Bucket hats are needed for Terms 1 and 4.
We ask you to dress children in appropriate clothes for school covering their shoulders to be sun safe.
Students should be able to play safely at interval, lunchtime and during PE sessions in the clothing that they wear to school.
Necklaces, bracelets and rings are not encouraged. Injuries may result during everyday play.
Pierced ears: Studs only please, no pendant styles or hoops which could catch and tear your child’s ear lobe.
Students selected for sports teams may be given a uniform to wear for the day (or the season). It is expected that these uniforms are worn with pride, treated with respect and returned freshly washed to the office.
It is recommended that all items of clothing and property be named. A considerable number of clothes are left unclaimed each term. Lost property can be inspected at any time. Periodically unclaimed property is donated to a clothing bank.
We have Pita Pit lunches delivered to our school on Tuesdays and Fridays.
These are to be ordered online by the parents before 9am on Tuesdays or Fridays from www.lunchonline.co.nz.
Office Max has Rotokawa School Stationary lists by class and year group. School stationary can be purchased online from www.myschool.co.nz or by shopping at the Fenton St store. They will pick and pack your child’s stationary for the year.
By Term 3 there are a few books you may be asked to purchase a new one of as these first ones may be finished. The school office carries a minimal amount of these books so they can be purchased at school then if that is more convenient.
