Year 7 Technology

Year 7 Technology starts next week. This year we intend to focus more heavily on the practical side of the Technology curriculum, which means it is essential that students are present for all four of their Technology days - if they miss a day, or even part of a day, it is difficult to catch up and may mean they are unable to complete outcomes.

Oamaru Intermediate School uniform shoes

We have had a number of questions related to school shoes. Students are required to wear plain black leather lace-up shoes. The shoe and sole of the shoe must be black, no big branding detail on the shoe. Canvas shoes and other casual shoes are not suitable. The important aspect to consider is that your child will be wearing these shoes while in our technology rooms where safety is paramount and must be adhered to. This is applicable from the first day until the last day of the year.
