Early Drop-offs
Please be mindful that if you are dropping your children off at school before 8.15am, that at this time staff are not actively involved in supervising the children.  Staff are often in meetings or preparing work outside the classroom until closer to 9.00am.

Leaving Early
Children leaving the school grounds must be accompanied by a parent/caregiver or a teacher, or have their caregiver’s written permission.  All children leaving the school grounds during school hours must be signed out at the Office.

Office Hours
The school office is open from 8.30am – 3.00pm each week day during the term.

Health and Safety
We will ensure that Maungakaramea School is a Safe and healthy environment at all times.


If you’re considering enrolling your child at our school, please feel free to pop in anytime to arrange visits. We will happily answer any queries you may have and show you around the school.  We do encourage two half-day and two full-day visits prior to your child’s 5th birthday. We have an enrolment pack available to download online (see link below) or at our school office. Before your child starts, we will need a copy of their birth certificate and their immunisation records.
