Kia Ora all. Just a couple of reminders. Firstly, if you are unable to make your music lesson or are running late, please message your tutor directly, to say you won’t be there in advance. Please have you parents/caregivers drop you off in the morning outside of the school gates to avoid congestion on the school grounds. Finally, If your lesson goes right to 8.45, please make sure you sign in on the i-pad at the office to avoid missing the roll. If you have any questions or concerns, please come and see me in Room 10. Mrs Warren

Setting the standard!

Week 3-4   Setting the standard! Our next RAWE focus for week 3 and 4 is all about wearing our uniforms with pride.

What this looks like:

  • Correct clean black shoes/sandals
  • Plain black socks without visible labels/brands (e.g Nike/Puma etc)
  • Optional: plain black stockings
  • School coloured hair ties (black, red, green)
  • Having long hair tied up (if your hair touches your shirt collar it must be tied up)
  • Jewellery is limited to one set of plain silver/gold stud earrings (No bracelets etc)
  • Correct school shirt, skirt, shorts, culottes, PE Gear
  • Plain black jackets are able to be worn – If you’re not sure if your jacket is suitable then ask either Mrs. Hooper or Mr. Sleep.

Why do we do this? Why is it important?

Our uniform is part of who we are as a school community, it shows unity amongst your peers and helps positively represent Highlands Intermediate. Remember whenever you leave our school gates, you are representing our awesome school. It is important you are doing the right thing, remember by our deeds we are known.

Please make sure you have NAMED everything! If you have lost something, check the lost property (via the office). If you need to replace a piece of uniform, head to the uniform shop (located near the front entrance of our school).
