Lunches in School

We provide lunch to all students as part of the MOE healthy school lunches programme.  

Our Chef and his team work hard to provide a healthy and nutritious lunch each day for our students and as such, although students can pack a lunch of their own choice, parents are not permitted to drop lunches to school, and students are not permitted to have food delivered to school.

Communication

Pānui

Our main form of communication is via Pānui. Each Friday during term time, pānui are published on the school website.  

Emails 

Teachers and Ākina Coaches will send emails to communicate with home.  Please ensure that we have your correct contact details.

Notices 

Notices are published on KAMAR each day. Notices are used to communicate to groups of students, e.g. Lunch time practice for sport or cultural events. Students are encouraged to check the daily notices during Ākina time each day.

Reception

When visiting the school please report to the Student Centre to sign in, scan the QR code and if necessary show your vaccination pass.

Bus routes and eligibility

  • Copies of bus routes can be collected from the Student Centre Office.
  • Please direct all questions around routes and eligibility to the Bus Controller, Amanda Greville ge@hastingsgirls.com.

Tickets

  • Tickets can be purchased from the drivers; we do however sell some tickets from the Student Centre Office.

Safety

  • All students catching a bus must wear a mask.
  • Cars are not permitted to park in the bus bay between 8am and 4pm.

School Rules

Hastings Girls’ High School Bylaws as adopted by the Board of Trustees

This Bylaw codifies the rules and regulations applicable to students enrolled at Hastings Girls’ High School. This Bylaw replaces all previous rules and regulations applicable to students enrolled at Hastings Girls’ High School.

General Conduct

  • Students take reasonable care of their own health and safety.
  • Students are expected, at all times, to conduct themselves in a sensible, responsible manner.
  • Students’ conduct shows care, concern, and consideration for others.
  • Students’ conduct shows respect for school property, and the property of other students. 
  • Students are responsible for their own property and bring at their own risk.
  • Cigarettes, e-cigarettes, vaping devices, lighters, alcoholic drinks, illegal and other mind-altering substances are not permitted at school or school events.

Fees

In 2020 Hastings Girls’ High School opted in to the Donations Scheme, which means parents, caregivers, and whānau never have to make a donation to school if they choose not to. If in the case of goods and services, a parent chooses to purchase supplies like pens for their child from the school, then they must pay as per agreed.  We will not charge students for enrolment or attendance, or for the delivery of curriculum. 

If your child is involved in weekend sports teams or after hours cultural activities (extra-curricular activities), these are optional. If you choose for your child to participate, you may be asked to cover the costs of these activities.

We may charge for sports trips that are outside the curriculum. Participation in these activities is optional, therefore we require payment where agreed that a student can participate. Any charge should be made in advance. 

We may ask for a donation for an overnight camp – and then you can choose if you want to pay none, some or all of the donation. If you choose not to make a donation, your child cannot be stopped from attending a camp if it is part of the school’s core learning programme (curriculum).

You need to provide your child with a school uniform.
