Eketahuna School

Eketahuna School


Please ensure that your child’s clothes are clearly named. Many items of clothing are identical or similar and some children genuinely have difficulty in recognising their own. Encourage your children to develop a sense of responsibility for their clothes. Shoes/boots are not to be worn in the classrooms. The school does not have a compulsory school uniform, but we do have a school distinctive T Shirt and track suits which are at times worn on school trips.


We have a Shady School Policy and as a result it is expected that all children will wear sunhats between Labour Day and Easter. Children without hats will sit on the veranda.

Our Sun Safety Procedure can be viewed here.


Students are encouraged not to bring money or valuables to school, but if it is necessary they should be left with Denise in the office for safekeeping. The school will not be responsible for lost money or valuables that are not left at the office.


All unclaimed property is kept in the back of the hall. It is displayed on the hall deck during the week so that children can look through them and at times during assemblies. At the end of each term it is passed on to a charity.
