All students are expected to be at school by 8.30am, ready to commence the school day at 8.45am. If students are genuinely ill, obviously the best place for them is to rest at home so they can make a quick recovery. Due to COVID 19 please err on the side of caution - especially with coughs and cold / flu like symptoms.

Please ensure that you contact us if your child is going to be absent. It is important to do this the morning of the absence OR, in the case of a planned absence / appointment, in advance.

Attendance is monitored closely and parents will be contacted if there are any concerns.

To register your child's absence:

Email: attendance@tauranga-int.school.nz
Phone: 07 578 4401


To enrol your child you will need:

  • Completed enrolment form
  • Birth certificate or Passport
  • Proof of address

Enrolment from can be collected from the school office. Parents of Contributing School students are required to fill in the enrolment card and administration forms (distributed to their school) and return them to their teacher.
