We take pride in our school uniform.  It can be a combination of the following:  

Red Polo Shirt with Te Mata logo.     Black shorts with Te Mata logo.

Red Fleece with Te Mata logo.          Black track pants with Te Mata logo.      
Black or Red School Sandals.            Sports Shoes (any colour).

Black or White Socks (no brands visible).

Black Skort.                                     Te Mata school dress (Junior size 4 & 6 only on offer).

Black Tights in Winter (full length and closed toe).

Red School Sunhat 
We are a ‘Sunsmart’ school. This means all children are required to wear a school uniform wide brimmed or bucket hat whilst at school during the summer months, from mid October to mid April. Children without hats will be directed to a shaded area during breaks.

​​​​​​​Please note:

  • Student's hair (boy or girl) that is longer than collar length should be tied up.
  • Student’s fringes (boy or girl) that covers their eyes needs to be back off their faces.
  • Plain black skins or bike shorts can only be worn under the uniform and must not be visible below the uniform when standing up.
  • No crocs, boots or jandals are to be worn.
  • Stud earrings (one per ear) - no long earring or hoops as these can catch on playground equipment and cause potential injuries.
  • Culturally significant items (eg: Pounamu/Greenstone necklace) can be worn.
  • No make-up or nail polish to be worn at school.
  • Watches (smart watches are discouraged but if worn must be on school mode during 8:45-2:45pm).
  • No cell phones. If needed for outside of school arrangements these are to be named and handed into the office or teacher for the day.

Lost Property

We encourage children to be responsible for their own belongings, so please support your child by naming their clothing. 

We have a great team here at Te Mata and all lost property makes it way back to the trolley outside the main doors of the Hall. 

Lost property can be checked and collected during school hours.
