Order free school resources

As well as the various project ideas on this website and Resene School Services programme to assist with your painting projects, Resene also has a range of free resources available for schools to order:

Resene 10L pails

Do you need 10L Resene buckets for bucket drums, bokashi, for environmental projects or to hold sports equipment? Resene has 10L pails available, and lids if you need them, useful for a whole host of projects around schools.

Square metre boards

Help your students visualise just how big 1 metre squared is. We have ‘metre square’ boards that we display in our stores, which are affixed to the wall and used to show how big one metre squared is. These have been very successfully used in schools, especially in maths and graphics departments. The board is available in a ‘hot chile’ red and a bright yellow variant. The total size is 1m x 1m. It is printed using paylite style substrate so can be wiped clean as needed to clean off dust.


1m2 boards for students

If you order these boards you must be permanently attaching them to a wall in a classroom/teaching area to avoid damage and so they will not be thrown away during end of term/year clean outs. We ask that the board be displayed in full as it is supplied. It Is not suitable as a noticeboard, for artwork or for portable use.

Old colour palettes   (Sorry we don't have any old charts for donation at present)
