HIGHLANDS INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL STATIONERY LIST 2018
|The following is a basic list of items your child will require for 2018. Your child’s teacher may require one or two additional items not shown here, however every effort has been made to keep costs to a minimum. The list is provided now so that stationery may be purchased in advance of school starting.
Students are expected to bring along these requirements on the first day of school.
Please label books with names only, not subject, as these will be identified by individual teachers.

These are an effective communication link between home and school. Students learn self-management skills and are responsible for their daily requirements and organisation. Diaries are included in the Stationery List but can only be purchased from the School Office or Uniform Shop at a cost of $10.00. These are compulsory for all students.
We request that all students have the following for their Technology lessons:
|Apron/Tea Towel/Container||Food Technology|
|‘Old’ shirt to cover uniform while painting etc||Visual Arts|
OfficeMax provides the school with a 10% rebate for every dollar spent on student stationery.
This allows the school to provide addition educational resources for all students.
OfficeMax are a member of the Government procurement scheme, which provides significant buying power and results in lower prices for parents and schools. In addition OfficeMax provides
a handy stationery pack at the retail branch, (173 Courtenay Street, New Plymouth) making life easier and saving you time.
