Panui for Parents and Whānau

What does my child need to bring and wear?

  • A named school bag
  • Correct and named school uniform
  • Named black leather shoes for Winter
  • Named black/ brown roman sandals for Summer
  • A named bottle for drinking water
  • A lunchbox containing enough healthy food for the day – fruit/veges, sandwiches

How can I help my child 'be their best'?

  • Send you child to school with a satisfied ‘tummy’ after a nutritious breakfast at home – weetbix without sugar, porridge, toast, eggs
  • Ensure your child has enough sleep and is in bed before 8 p.m each night
  • Keep your child warm and dry by providing the correct school uniform
  • Keep your child at Yendarra School as changing schools disrupts learning

After School Care
After School Care is available through SKIDS. Ask at the school office for more information about our After School Care programme that operates from 2.45- 6.00 each school day.

Healthy Lunch Box Guide

What if my child is unwell?
Your child shouldn’t attend school if he/she has a temperature (more than 38°C), coloured discharge from the nose, an unidentified rash or spots, sore throat, severe cough, vomiting, diarrhoea or headlice.

If your child becomes sick while at Yendarra School, we’ll let you know immediately.
