Pink Shirt Day Friday 20 May.

Join us on Friday 20 May 2022 as we Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak Up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying!

On Friday 20 May we will have a mufti day and encourage everyone to wear pink and bring in a gold coin donation to support Pink Shirt Day.

Celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students took a stand against homophobic bullying, after a peer was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. In Aotearoa, Pink Shirt Day works to create schools, workplaces, communities and whānau where everyone feels safe, valued and respected.

Recently, the Stonefields Collaborative Trust (SCT) has secured an investment partner in the Hugh Green Foundation (HGF) to enable us to continue to grow as an organisation and provide our customers with improved support in the years to come. 

As a result of this new impact partnership, and to enable our continued development and expansion, a new entity has been formed called Te Kete Hono – SchoolTalk. This includes all the professional development that our wonderful team offers when supporting schools to utilise the full functionality of SchoolTalk. 

Because SchoolTalk is a new entity, this means that we legally require all our users to login, read and accept the new policies from Tuesday 10th May 2022. 

On the Tuesday 10th of May all users will be redirected to the Terms and Conditions screen, where they will need to read and agree to the Privacy Policy, Code of Conduct and Terms of Use. 

After accepting the terms, they will be redirected back to their portals. If you have any questions or issues, please get in touch with

Information for Parents/Caregivers/Whānau Who Are Coming Into School

Please read these carefully so you are fully aware of our expectations of parents/caregivers/whānau who are coming on site, before school or at pick up time.

Before School

  • We are encouraging parents/caregivers/whānau to drop off their children/tamariki at the gate so they can walk into school on their own.
  • If parents/caregivers/whānau want to drop their children/tamariki off at their classroom they can.
  • All visitors must wear a mask while on school grounds.
  • At orange level parents/caregivers/whānau with their children/tamariki are able to come on-site after the 8.30am bell. 
  • No one will be allowed on site before 8.30am. Please do not send your child to school before 8.30am.
  • At the 8.30am bell parents/caregivers/whānau with their children/tamariki will be allowed on site and they must go straight to their classroom.
  • Parents/caregivers/whānau will only go to their child’s classroom.
  • This time between 8.30am and 8.55am is a great time for your child to show you around the classroom and show you their learning. Teachers use this time to connect and check in with  children/tamariki. This is not a time for an in-depth conversation with your child’s teacher. If you want to discuss your child’s learning more in-depth please book a time with the teacher after school. 
  • Once the 8.55am bell goes we ask that all parents/caregivers/whānau leave the school so that our children/tamariki can begin their learning without distractions.

Pick up Time at School

  • We are encouraging parents/caregivers/whānau to pick up their children/tamariki at the gate so they can walk out of school on their own.
  • If parents/caregivers/whānau want to pick up their children/tamariki in the school grounds they can.
  • All visitors must wear a mask while on school grounds.
  • Parents/caregivers/whānau can come on site from 2.45pm and wait for their children/tamariki on the court or the field. 
  • We ask parents/caregivers/whānau not to come to school before 2.45pm as this causes distractions to the children/tamariki’s learning.
  • Parents/caregivers/whānau please do not wait outside the classroom as this causes distractions to the children/tamariki’s learning.  

If you have any questions please contact Cameron
