Te Waka Unua School

Start of the 2019 School Year

The first day of school for 2019 is Monday the 4th of February.


The school office is open for enrolments and enquiries between 10am and 2pm from the 21st of January.  Please don’t hesitate to come in and see Gerardine, who will be more than happy to help you.  

We will have a pōwhiri at 9am on the first day to welcome our new staff, students and their families to our school.  


Order forms are available from the school office along with a small selection of second-hand items.  

Please call Gerardine on 03 389 9305 or come in and see her if you need to discuss uniform needs.

Expenses & Stationery

We continue to be committed to assisting our families to access a high-quality education while passing on minimal costs to our parents.  We have worked really hard to get very competitive prices with our stationery this year and are able to pass this on to our parents at cost.  The school is not making a profit on stationery and the Board of Trustees continues in 2019 to: not request a school donation from families; supply Chromebooks and iPads for student use; and cover our Year 7&8 technology material fees.   

Stationery Packs are supplied in bulk to keep the cost low for our families. We would appreciate if all students have paid for their stationery by the end of the second week.  Any families that are unable to do this are asked to contact the school office to organise a payment plan so student learning isn’t impacted.

Stationery Costs: $12 per student


All teams stationery packs cost $12 which will provide them with all the equipment they need.
