Te Kura

Free Microsoft software

To help our students prepare for success, we have partnered with Microsoft to offer Office 365 to every student free of charge.

With Office 365, your student will have access to the latest version of Word, for writing; Excel, for spreadsheets; PowerPoint, for presentations; OneNote, for organisation and note taking; and much more.

It can be installed on up to 5 compatible PCs and Macs, plus 5 tablets (including iPad!). Use with OneDrive for automatic device syncing. The subscription lasts for as long as your student is enrolled at Te Kura.

Follow our simple instructions to download Office to your computer desktop or visit the Microsoft website for more information and a link to download: http://www.microsoft.com/education/ww/StudentAdvantage/Pages/hed-install.aspx 

To enable our students to take up this offer, we have allocated every student a ‘My Te Kura’ email address which they must use to sign in and download the software or access it through the Cloud. Your student’s email address is their firstname.lastname@mytekura.school.nz. The password is their Te Kura student ID number. You may also nominate to use this email account as your student's primary account for emails to and from Te Kura. If you wish to do this, fill in the online form on our website giving your student's 'My Te Kura' address as their email address.

If you have trouble installing Office, this guide may resolve your issue: http://aka.ms/office365help

If you have difficulties logging in, email us at mslicenses@tekura.school.nz. Remember, you must be a current Te Kura student to download this software and will only retain the right to use it while enrolled with Te Kura.
