Newsletter 201508 - 25 March 2015


We received another “part” of our uniform order, included in this are the school jersey order too, with only a few more to come!! Kohi has been contacting whānau who have already paid for their uniforms as efficiently as possible at this stage, if you are yet to be contacted please feel free to either contact her by phone, 4011532, or by calling in to the school office to collect the items you have purchased.

A reminder that school jerseys are priced according to sizes. Sizes 6 – 14 are $55 each. Any size bigger will cost $65 each. All school polo’s are $35 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.

Tomorrow, 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 whānau would like to help, come and see Whaea Michelle Hudson who works mainly in Room 9/Rangimārie.

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