Announcement : 

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Whānau,   The Ministry of Education (MoE) is proposing the establishment of a new Year 1-8 co-educational primary school in Massey Redhills, Auckland.   A preferred site for the proposed Massey Redhills Primary School has been identified within the live zoned Redhills precinct area west of Fred Taylor Drive.  To cater for school aged population growth in the short term, the proposed new school will be temporarily located at 13 – 15 Trig Road, Whenuapai.  The proposed school would be known as Massey Redhills Primary School during its establishment.  The foundation learners and staff of the school would start at the Trig Road site and move to the permanent school site in Massey Redhills when it is built and ready for occupation.     As part of the proposal, the MoE is required to consult with the Board of any state school whose roll might be affected if the school was established.   If you have any feedback on this proposal, please email me at pa@whenuapai.school.nz by Friday, 15 October 2021. Your responses will be collated and form part of our feedback provided to the MoE (please note – the deadline stated in the attached letter has now been extended).   Subject to the Minister establishing the proposed new school, the MoE are also seeking nominations for the Establishment Board of the new school. Information about the role of the Establishment Board, a nomination form and the Eligibility Attestation form are attached for anyone who is interested.    Massey – Redhills – Letter consult.docx EBOT Massey – Redhills – Info pack candidates EBOTs.docx   Ngā mihi nui,   Jo Wright Principal’s PA

Rationale:
  • Appropriate clothing enables students to participate safely in the full range of activities typical in a school day.
  • Considered choices support positive health and hygiene practices
  • Pride and presentation of students presents a positive image of the School and the high standards it upholds
Standards:

Safety

  1. Jewellery: a watch and plain ear studs may be worn as part of our uniform. Jewellery can easily get caught in a myriad of ways resulting in injury.
  2. Black sandals or shoes. Footwear with heels will compromise safety during break times and during physical education and as such do not form part of our uniform. For the same reason sandals must have a heel strap.

Health and Hygiene

  1. Plain hair bands. Students with mid – long hair are encouraged to tie hair back. This may reduce the spread of head lice in classrooms. Students attending Technology at Taupaki are required to wear their hair tied back for health and safety reasons. Teachers may require students to tie their hair back if students are preparing food or are involved in an activity where it is deemed appropriate.
  2. A school hat is compulsory in Terms 1 and 4.
  3. Additional items of warmth in the winter may be worn  (gloves, hat, scarf).  These need to be plain and in navy or black.

Pride

  1. All students must wear the appropriate sport uniform when representing the school.
  2. Under shirts must be tucked in and not visible.
  3. Boys: Navy drill shorts with Whenuapai School polo, round neck or V neck shirt. Please note: Year 7 and 8 students wear a blue polo shirt. Whenuapai School polar fleece sweatshirt.
  4. Girls: Navy skorts, shorts or trousers with Whenuapai School polo, round neck or V neck shirt. Please note: Year 7 and 8 students wear a blue polo shirt. Whenuapai School polar fleece sweatshirt.
  5. Make-up, including nail polish is not to be worn at school.
