Newsletter 201507 - 18 March 2015


A special welcome to our new tamariki and their whanau: Bino-Lee and Muriwai Popata-Kaitao.



We received part of our uniform order last week, mainly size 6 polo shirts. Kohi will give whanau who have already purchased uniforms a phone call to check if size 6 will fit their tamariki.

We also have the polar fleece jackets. These are priced according to sizes therefore from a size 6 – 14 will be $55 each any size bigger will cost $65 each.

For now any children with no uniform please feel free to wear your usual clothes or there are green polo’s at The Warehouse Kaikohe that are ok also. DO NOT keep your child home if they do not have a uniform please. If you want to set up an automatic payment or just pay a uniform off as you can afford to, come and see Kohi in the office, we will make it as easy as we can for you.


New World Garden Project

To show our appreciation for the support Kaikohe New World has given to our school and community we are planning to support them by helping tidy up the garden at the front of the shop.

On 26th March a group of selected senior tamariki and students from North Tec Horticulture course will be removing the flax outside the shop and tidying the area.

The flax will be replanted around our bike track.

If any whanau would like to help, come and see Whaea Michelle Hudson who works mainly in Room 9/Rangimarie.

The group will leave school at a bout 11am and return around 2pm, any assistance would be appreciated.
