Kia ora Rosebank Whānau,


I hope you’re all as excited as we are for the tamariki to return to school tomorrow! Please re-read the document sent in the last correspondence so that you are aware of the procedures for returning to school. I have included a few reminders here for you too. 


Please talk to your tamariki about the points below to prepare them to have a great start back to school!




  • Gates A and B are open from 8:20 am tomorrow morning
  • Parents, please say goodbye at the gate and do not enter school grounds
  • Whau kids to go to Whaea Jasmin on the Whau courts 
  • Manawa kids to go to Miss Fitzjames on the stage
  • Kōtahitanga and Tupulaga kids to go to Mr Bennet under the trees by Kōtahitanga




  • Masks are essential for year 3 upwards at Rosebank as we have composite classes
  • Please ensure they have their own mask everyday they attend




  • Please bring morning tea and a drink bottle
  • Free lunches will be provided and we will do our best to cater to special diets




  • Full school uniform must be worn tomorrow onwards
