Communication Between School and Home


Email is the preferred means of communication with the School and classroom teachers. Email addresses for all staff can be found at Our People. There is an expectation that any emails will be acknowledged within one school day. 

Please do not email absence notifications to classroom teachers.  The preferred method is to use the Report an Absence function on the School website or to ring the School Office. 

Changed of Personal Details

In order to maintain efficient records and communication it is vital that the School be kept informed of new addresses, phone numbers, emails and other changes in family circumstances affecting our students. This is especially important in the event of an accident or emergency.  

Please use the Update My Details link on the top right corner of the school website to notify us of any changes. Alternatively, you can email the updates to the school office at


The School website is the primary source of information for parents.  A School Newsletter will be emailed to all caregivers, usually on Fridays every fortnightly during term time.  Newsletters are also published on the School website under the Newsletters tab. 

Daily Notices

At School, information regarding activities, sports and clubs is delivered directly to students via Daily Notices and assemblies. Students are expected to take responsibility for remembering this information and sharing it with parents.  We believe this is a vital part of students transitioning to independent learners. 

School Apps

The school has a free school app called SchoolAppsNZ which can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. Once downloaded, please select Remuera Intermediate under School.
This app works on both Android and Apple phones. It sends important school messages and forms an essential part of our school communications.

Features of the App:

  • You can subscribe to alert groups of interest to you and your child
