Hockey Fun Day Whangarei

What an awesome day our children had playing in the Hockey Festival last Tuesday.

8 students travelled to Whangarei Kensington Stadium to take part in a Hockey Fun Day playing other schools from around the north.  They had a lot of fun and enjoyed their end of hockey season games.


Free Vision Testing and Free Glasses

This Monday 7 September and Tuesday 8 September classes will be walking to see an Optometrist set up in the Northland College hall to provide full eye tests for our Kaikohe East children who have returned their One Sight form completed.

If the tests show that glasses are required these will be manufactured to order and delivered to the child’s school about three weeks later.

Last week your child brought home a consent form for this.

Note that you only need to fill in the top part of the form.

We need the form completed and returned to school as soon as possible. All returned forms will go into a special free lunch draw.

Be sure to return your form to the school office.

We are sending another form home today to those who have not returned a form to the school.



Currently there are senior children involved in the School Choir preparing for the Kids for Kids evening at The Centre in Kerikeri on 20 October.


Cultural Festival
We now have three groups preparing for the annual Cultural Festival to be held at Northland College on Tuesday 15th September (Dress Rehearsal) and Thursday 17th September (Public performance).  The Dress Rehearsal is for performers only and starts at 11am, the performance for the public is on the Thursday, entry is by Koha and this performance will start at 10.30am.
