Please bring a Chromebook in 2018
We are asking families to provide a chromebook for their child to bring to school in 2018. More information can be found here in our BYOD & ICT contract. This document needs to be printed, signed and returned in the first week of school.
2018 Stationery & Uniform
We have two different companies who are able to supply you with what you will need for the start of the year:
Purple school are the new education supply division of The Warehouse Group. They offer a 'one stop shop' online order service and can provide uniform, stationery and chromebooks. They will be open for orders from 8th January - 28 February 2018 - you can sign up to be notified when it launches by visiting their main website purpleschool.co.nz.
Here is a flyer that contains their full list of stationery, uniform and chromebook offerings.
If you prefer you can view, try on and buy the uniform in-store at The Warehouse in Wagener Place across the road from St Luke's shopping centre.
2017 & 2018 School Fees and Donations
Annual optional and voluntary donation for one child: $300
Two or more children per family: $450
The Board of Trustees asks all families for a optional and voluntary donation to contribute to school funds. This goes towards additional learning resources not funded by the government and covers resources that all students benefit from such as 'take home' items from the technology and arts programmes, additional devices such as the school chromebook computers and subsidising the cost of visiting experts and field trips. A receipt will be provided and this may be used for tax deduction purposes. All and any donations will be used to enhance students' learning and help Kowhai provide the best possible programmes.
