Te Ao Mārama 101 - Info Session & School Tour

We ask that all new families, across all year levels, attend an info session & school tour. The tours are also open to students and their families looking to enrol at Te Ao Mārama School in the near future.

Note: All new-entrant families will participate in a school tour & "Te Ao Mārama 101" sessions with their child's cohort group.

To find a date that suits you, please check our Te Ao Marama 101 dates in our school calendar. We appreciate you letting us know in advance that you are coming which you can do by emailing [email protected] or phoning 07 595 0595.


Our stationery requirement lists are loaded on to the OfficeMax website:

Each Learning Community (class) has a stationery list.

School Day

Our school day starts at 8:40am and concludes at 2:30pm.

Students can be on site from 8am, although classes only open at 8.20am (which is the ideal time to arrive and to prepare for the day).


We have an optional Te Ao Mārama school polo shirt and hoodie.

You can place orders for these via our online Kindo shop ( & sample sizes are available for trying on in the office.

Please note: Kukri make these items to order for us, so they can take a number of weeks to arrive.
