Mauku School is a Health Promoting School. The Junior School studets will have a "Brain Food" snack of fruit at the mid morning fitness break.
We would like Parents to make sure students are given at least one piece of fruit a day. We allow only water bottles during class time.
All other lunch wrappers will be returned home in the child's lunchbox.
ALL students are required to wear our school uniform - school polo shirt and sweatshirt. Dark bottoms (black or dark coloured shorts, skirts etc). Uniforms are sold at school only, on a Thursday 8:30 - 9:00 and 2.30 - 3:00.
Mauku School Board of Trustees is elected to look after the interests of our school, and ensure the best education for our children. We are not involved in the ordinary day to day running of the school. This is looked after by the Principal and teachers. The Board is concerned with policies and financial management, and maintaining the school environment (buildings and amenities).
