As many of you will have seen over the weekend the government have been tightening up precautionary measures to prevent the spread of Covid 19. The advice to schools remains the same at this stage with the main focus being on hygiene. It is important that any children that are displaying signs of illness are kept home from school. In particular if your child has a cough, shortness of breath or a temperature they should not be at school.
Please do not send your child to school if they have any of these symptoms.
If you have any concerns contact either healthline or your g.p for further advice.
Also, as the situation is continually changing with Covid 19 and it’s management within NZ the best place to get the most up-to-date
information is directly from the ministry of health website.
Please notify the school if your child will be absent. This ensures the safety of your child during the hours of school.
If your child will be absent try out our new Skool Loop app to report your child’s absence. If you haven’t downloaded it yet please leave a message on the school answer phone or text 027 5614 170 your child’s name and either medical or family as the reason for absence - Thank you.
If your child is a bus user you must also notify the Bus Driver on 027 480 8670 or the school office on 573 7035.
Bus Driver - Grenville Lints - contact him directly if you need to let him know any changes to your young peoples pick up and drop offs. His cell phone number is 027 480 8670
In 2020 we will supply stationery to classes in bulk rather than individual packs. The bulk buying of these items allows us to obtain the most competitive pricing available while ensuring quality and consistency of product.
We have tried to keep prices down and have subsidised some of the costs, meaning there will be a standard price for all classes of $45 for 2020. This price does not include headphones and a Homepack which you will need to provide and send along with your child.
The stationery charge will be payable through the School Office early in 2019 (or on the first day of school) or via internet banking 12-3407-0040841-00 anytime from now. Please use your child's name as a reference.
We will also continue to use Mathletics, which year was funded by the school, however will incur a fee of $40 per child this year for year 4 and up only.

Annual School Events
At Rangiuru School we provide students with a wide variety of extra curricular activities to be involved in. Students are encouraged to join teams or activities that interest them. Below are a list of some of them that occur throughout the year.
BBQ/Picnic to meet the teachers at the start of the school year
Lamb and Calf Day
Lamb and Calf Day
Our school holds this event in October on an annual basis. It is a unique opportunity for all students to care for a lamb/goat/calf that is born in July and show them off at the school competition. Students who place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the school competition win entry into the Te Puke Group day which is attended by all other schools in the Te Puke District. Group day is held at the Te Puke A & P Showgrounds.
For those students who wish to participate in the Lamb and Calf Day but don’t have access to a calf/goat/lamb the school may have contacts to help provide an animal to care for. We do encourage our students to enter this competition as it gives them an experience full of learning opportunities that can’t be gained in the classroom.
Our school day also includes baking, flower arrangements and construction competitions to help to make this a fun event for everyone.
