School Donation

This is $12.50 per term, or $50.00 per year for the first child and $10.00 per term for every other child i.e. $40.00 per year for each child after the first.


This is available, at a very competitive price, from the school office before school.

Absence Notification

If your child is going to be absent from school you can send an email and/or call the office via our school app before 9am. The phones in the office are manned from 8am.  Email messages can be sent to absences@terapa.school.nz.  We have a system set up so that a phone call will be made to the residence of any student that is absent without notification. This is done as soon as it is possible after 9am, however we would prefer parents/caregivers contacting the school rather than the school having to phone you.

Reporting to Parents

This year we will be formally reporting to parents in the following ways:
Term 1: Meet the Teacher Orientation afternoon / evening
Learning Conferences (Parent / Student / Teacher)
Term 3: Written Progress Statement and Learning Conferences (Parent / Student / Teacher)
Term 4: Written Report

School T- shirts

These are available from the school office for $37.
All school representatives are required to purchase and wear the school t-shirt. This is for all sports teams, and cultural groups e.g. choir, dance troupe etc.

School Lunches

Every Tuesday and Friday lunchtimes we have a special lunch menu available. This needs to be ordered in the MPR kitchen before school. It is expected that students place money into an envelope and then their name, room number and order written clearly on the outside of the envelope. Envelopes should be sent from home however there are some available. Every day during interval and lunch, the MPR canteen is open and operated by senior students who are part of our Student Council. Full details are available at the office.
