As our school is near a busy main road, cycling is only recommended for pupils in the senior school. It is compulsory for all cyclists to wear Approved safety helmets. Bicycles are placed in stands when at school.



Dental Clinic

Our clinic is open for part of the year.

This varies depending on the amount of work our therapist has.

If you need to contact our dental therapist, the phone number is 09-439-1067.



First Aid

Should your child suffer an accident at school, he/she will be attended to.  If a doctor’s advice is deemed necessary, parents will be contacted immediately.

If parents or immediate family cannot be raised, the child will be taken to the Medical Centre.

Please ensure any changes of your address or telephone, or those of your contact people are notified to the school office immediately, so our records are up to date.

Please advise us if pupils need to take any medication during the day, and ensure that any medication for allergies is held in the school sick bay.  Be aware also that we are not entitled to give pupils aspirin/panadol for headaches, etc.




Fruit in Schools

We are very fortunate to be part of this fantastic programme.

Children of Selwyn Park are provided with a piece of fruit, for morning tea, daily.




The school has daily fitness for 10-15 minutes.  It is vital that all pupils are dressed appropriately for this high level activity.  Teachers can waste a lot of time ensuring pupils are dressed for the occasion.

We ask all parents/caregivers to see children have the right change of clothing, e.g. shorts, T-shirt and suitable footwear.

If your child is to be excused from exercise, a note to the class teacher is required.




Milk in Schools

We are at present trialling this programme which is provided by Fonterra.  Each child will be given a 250ml carton of milk to drink daily.  If you do not want your child to be part of this programme, let us know.



Sun Smart Policy

During Terms 1 and 4, children are required to wear sun hats (wide brimmed or bucket hats) during interval and lunchtime.
