At Pakuranga Heights we have a smart, comfortable uniform which is compulsory for all students. ​The uniform has a unisex polo top and a polar fleece or sports jacket  with a combination of:

  • Girls:    skorts or culottes
  • Boys:   shorts or trousers

All children must wear a school sunhat when they are outside during term 1 and term 4. The school uniform can be ordered online on the link below and have it delivered to your home. Delivery is expected within five working days for standard items. The school recommends ordering online at least two weeks prior to your child starting school at Pakuranga Heights School to ensure your child has the uniform in time before their first day. The culottes and the school jacket are not available online but can be purchased from the uniform shop (see below for opening hours).  School bucket hats, caps and socks can also be purchased at the school office all year round during normal school hours. ​ Students are permitted to wear a navy blue, long sleeved garment or navy tights underneath their uniform if they have strong religious beliefs or customs which require it.

At Pakuranga Heights School we offer a pre-school programme for childen who are 4 1/2 years old and have enrolled at Pakuranga Heights  School.  The programme is to help the children transition into the primary school setting the term before they start school.  The Top Start programme runs on a Wednesday afternoon from 2:00pm – 3:00pm, during term time for 8 weeks. The cost of the programme is $10.00 per session, which must be paid in advance. Top Start is co-ordinated by our Junior School Deputy Principal and aided by a learning assistant.  The class size is limited to a maximum of 12 students. ​Each term there will be a theme that will be integrated to cover the following:

Literacy and Numeracy

  • Alphabet – recognition of letters and sounds
  • Writing opportunities
  • Counting, shapes, proportions (math concepts)

Social Skills

  • Development of routines
