School uniform is compulsory at Koru School. We do not expect students to start school in their uniforms but they will need to be in uniform within 2 weeks of starting. Uniforms can be ordered at NZ Uniforms only. Their phone number is 0800 698 643.

Parents can choose between red, gold or green polo shirts. Please make sure all clothing is clearly named.

Stationery and School Donation

Koru School does not sell stationery. The School Donation is $10 per student per year and is to be paid at the school office.

Absent, Late, or Leaving Early

If your child is going to be absent, you must contact the school as soon as possible (a text is fine) or your child will be marked as truant and a truancy officer may be sent to the home. Your child will be marked as truant on the school roll if we do not hear from you. If your child is late to school, please ensure that they sign in at the office and collect a Late Pass, otherwise they will be marked as absent. If you are picking up your child early from school, please sign your child out at the office and collect an Early Release Pass. Your child will not be allowed to leave their classroom without a pass.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school. We are always happy to help!
