Communication

Matakana School communicates school news, activities and events using the following means:

  • Newsletter

    • The newsletter is sent out fortnightly on a Monday via email.  All current newsletters can be found on the website, on the APP, and in hard copy at the office.  Contact communication@matakana.school.nz if you wish to advertise in the newsletter.

  • School App ‘Matakana School’

    • The app is used as our primary communication tool for school wide/community emergencies and is beneficial for parents for school event reminders.  The App offers a number of tools, including absentee notification - check them out by downloading the iOS/Android App on the App store and selecting your alert groups. 

  • Facebook
    • Photos feature on the school’s facebook group called ‘Matakana School Group’.  Please refer to the guidelines on how to join the school facebook group.

  • Google Calendar
