Enrolment

Reremoana School has a Ministry of Education approved enrolment zone. All students who live within the home zone boundary are entitled to enrol at the school.

“All the area of the Wattle Downs Peninsula south/south west of a line that runs from the southern boundary of the Acacia Cove retirement complex in Wattle Farm Road, across the Wattle Downs Golf Course to the point at which it’s north eastern boundary meets Carnoustie Drive. The zone includes all houses in Fergy Crescent, and houses in Wattle Farm Road south of and including Nos 154 and 155, all houses in Blackwood Drive, all house in Pinehurst Place, and all houses in Carnoustie Drive, south of and including Nos 35 and 48."

We are only enrolling students who live within the ‘home zone’ of our enrolment scheme. We are obliged to inform families that the Board of Trustees has the right to annul the enrolment of any students where false information regarding residency has been given. 

Prior to enrolling, please collect or request an enrolment pack.

You will also be asked to provide two forms of proof of residency (originals please) , one of which needs to be a utility bill (eg power, water, rates, landline/internet).  Birth certificates are also essential. We will  take copies of these and return the originals to you.  The board of trustees must be assured that your child meets the requirements of an in-zone resident.  If providing two forms of residency within zone is an issue we invite you to please make an appointment to meet with the principal.

When enrolment documentation is completed and your child begins school, we request records and information from your child’s previous school. You may wish to inform them that your child will be leaving. 

Uniform

Our uniform is supplied by Uniform Works, and can easily be ordered online.

Every Wednesday afternoon from 3-3:30 p.m. or Thursday morning from 8:30-9 a.m. you can try sample uniform pieces on for size. Come to the office and you will be directed where to go.

We do not have a specific change over for winter and summer uniform, although school hats are compulsory in term one and term four. Caps are for students in Years 5 to 8 only. Some items are exclusively for our Year 7 and 8 students.

Our full uniform policy can be found in School Docs (see below).

Stationery

Stationery lists are updated annually, and can be viewed via the Office Max link. Packs are easily purchased through Office Max, although families are welcome to purchase the specified items anywhere. 

Visitors to School

For Health and Safety, all visitors to the school, including parents, are to sign in and out at the school office upon arrival.

Under the Covid Protection Framework, we require visitors to scan in using the COVID tracer app, and to follow any other additional sign in requirements to whatever level we are in. 

Before & After School Care

We outsource our before and after school care to Ultimate Kidz. Sean and Lisa have been running our out of school programmes since we opened in 2006.

To make an enquiry, please phone 021916677 or email Ultimate Kidz.

Lunches

Ezlunch orders are made online through your myKindo account.

Sushi Lunches can be ordered through Kindo on Fridays only at the stage. We are working with our providers to increase options again and will update the menu accordingly.

Ready, Set, GO!

More information about our Ready, Set, GO! transition to school programme is coming soon.

Policies & Procedures

Reremoana School worked with SchoolDocs to create a website for our policies and procedures and we continue to use SchoolDocs to maintain, update, and review our policies. SchoolDocs provides us with a comprehensive core set of policies which have been well researched and follow the Ministry of Education National Administration Guidelines. The policies and procedures are tailored to our school, and the school supplies specific information such as our charter, and procedures for behaviour management, reporting to parents, etc.

SchoolDocs updates, modifies, or creates policies in response to changes in legislation or Ministry guidelines, significant events, reviews/requests from schools, and regular reviewing from the SchoolDocs team. Our board of trustees has the opportunity to view changes/additions and comment on them before they are implemented.

The sporting culture at Reremoana is particularly strong. 

We provide a wide range of sporting opportunities within classroom programmes, and also field teams for a range of codes which compete within our local sports cluster. This includes netball, hockey, orienteering, rippa rugby, cricket, swimming and volleyball. It is not unusual for our teams and individual athletes to qualify for and place in regional competitions. 

We also participate in the AIMS Games (for intermediate aged students) annually.

Children of all ages can join our of school teams. We field netball teams in the Auckland schools competition on Tuesdays, basketball on Fridays and hockey on Friday/Saturday (depending on age).

Our annual athletics and cross country days are school wide calendar events that we really look forward to. For more information please contact Karien Fourie karienf@reremoana.school.nz

School Donations

The school donation is a voluntary payment to the school, it is tax deductible for families and will be used to enhance student learning and the opportunities we are able to offer our students.  

Our Board of Trustees annually reviews and sets a school fee donation which it believes is reflective of our school community.

2020 Annual Report

The annual report is a key accountability document that Boards of Trustees (Boards) are required to prepare to inform and report to stakeholders including the Ministry of Education (the Ministry), Members of Parliament and, most importantly, parents and the wider school community.

The annual report contains the audited financial statements for the year that show how the Board has applied its financial resources to achieve the goals set out in the school charter.
The annual report also contains an analysis of any variance between the planned aims, objectives, directions, priorities, or targets (as set out in the school charter) and what the school has actually achieved during the year. The analysis of variance describes how the school has addressed the Board's priorities for improving student achievement, and how successful the school's approach has been. The analysis of variance should also provide the basis for plans for the coming year.
