Eketahuna Primary School


The school urges parents/caregivers to make sure ALL students have appropriate and healthy snacks every day for their play breaks. It is also vital for students to have had a good breakfast before coming to school in the morning.

Teachers stay with the children while they eat their lunch and snacks. This serves 2 purposes. It ensures the children get sustenance and secondly it keeps the playground free of food scraps, lunch wraps etc. Although the school understands we cannot control what is put in lunchboxes we would strongly recommend that healthy choices are made.

All children are asked to bring a water bottle to school, which can be refilled though out the day at our filtered water filler.

There are to be no lollies, gum, sweets or fizzy/energy drinks brought to school. 

We support, challenge and build confident, connected and actively involved life long learners.
