School office hours

Monday to Friday 8.30am to 3.15pm


Teachers may be contacted by email Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.

Lost property


All lost property is kept in the road patrol cupboard behind the bell tower. At the end of every term, lost property is laid out for collection and all unclaimed items are donated to charity.

Please name all your children's belongings!


Please let the office know as soon as possible if your child is away. They also need to know on following days if your child is still away. Absences of longer than three weeks need to be discussed with the Principal.


All stationery items can be purchased online.

Paying for school activities online - KINDO

You can pay for all school activities online using Kindo. Paying through KINDO also acts as permission for your child to attend/participate in the activity.

Once registered, you will be able to pay for donations, trips, stationery, sunhats etc. 


During terms 1 and 4 all children are required to wear a sunhat that covers their forehead and neck when they are outside. Children are welcome to wear a hat from home; Island Bay School sunhats are also available from the office at a reasonable cost.

The Public Health Nurse


Nurses are available to visit the school to help with any pupil health problems. A hearing/vision test is administered to every child in their first year at school if they have not been previously tested at an Early Childhood Education Centre.

Dental Nurse


The school provides dental checks at school once a year.
If your child requires dental treatment, please contact the Lyall Bay School Dental Clinic – phone 387 8820.
