General Information

Dental Treatment

The mobile dental van visits us once a year, or treatment can be received at the Warkworth Dental Clinic phone 09 425 8701.

Emergency Procedures

In the event of an accident or sickness students are attended to in the Sick Bay. If our Staff is in doubt, or if the situation is serious, parents will be contacted immediately. If we are unable to contact your family, we will notify the emergency contact listed, or if appropriate, a doctor. We keep an up to date list of medical problems and action plans in the Sick Bay and the Office.

In the event of a Civil Defence Emergency, the school is the Civil Defence community assembly area. If there is an emergency school closure we will implement our Phone Tree.

We have regular evacuation (‘Safer Outside’) and lock down drills (‘Safer Inside’).


Sausage Sizzle lunches and ice blocks are available for sale once a term – advertised in the newsletter.

Public Health Nurse

The Public Health Nurse, Mrs. Maretta Hodges is available by arrangement or on request. She also assists us by providing expertise in some of our health programmes.


Some replacement stationery is available at school from the School Office at a very reasonable cost. To order stationery at the beginning of the school year you go to the Eeny Meeny site, find Tomarata School, find the class/year group your child is in and make an order. The stationery packs get delivered to your home. Information regarding this process goes home with the end of year report.
