A huge congratulations followed but lots of cuddles and kisses from Kaikohe East School to Whaea Arlene, Solomon, Jayda and Portia on the arrival of their baby boy Taiapo.  Isn’t he delicious!


Whanau Education Action Plan

Currently the school is liaising with Keryn Bristowe from Te Taitokerau Attendance service and our School Social Worker Lucy Taurua Mason about selecting children and whanau to support with their learning.  Over the next few weeks Keryn and or Lucy will be in touch with whanau we believe may like to be involved.  If you are contacted and need to talk to Whaea Chicky about anything please do not hesitate.


School Speeches

Tomorrow in the school hall we are having our school speech competition. Non-competitive speeches will be from 10-11 and competitive speeches are from 11.30am until about 12pm.  Teachers will try to contact the whanau of children who are representing their class at the speeches today.


Term 3 Topic - Olympics

Next term lots of our classes will be following the Olympics that are being held in Rio.


League practice is every Monday and Wednesday with Matua Ken Moka.  League is played Wednesday afternoons at 4pm.  All players must have shoes and a mouth guard.



Last week’s Player of the Day recipients were; Years 3 & 4 Mr Whippy voucher Viennah Rodger showing great defensive play and Kararaina Tahere best all round player.  McDonalds voucher Wiki Witehira and Indica Wharerau. For making our team complete, finally from our Year 5 &6 team Ripeka Joyce!

Mainfreight Calendar Art 2017Well done Ana!  Her art has been selected from hundreds of entries for the 2017 Mainfreight Art Calendar, we are very proud of you!


Mid-Year Reports

Mid-Year Reports will go home Week 10, last week of Term 2, on Wednesday 6th July.  If your child has been at school for less than 6 weeks they will not receive a report, however, you can make a time with their teacher if you wish to discuss anything.


Please return school reading books

Could all whanau please have a good look over the weekend for any school reading books or library books.  Our school reading book supplies seem to be very low at the moment and we think that this is because children may have brought books home and forgotten to return them.  Please return any books, no questions asked!  Teachers will be rewarding any children who return books.

Breakfast Club is in the hall every morning from 8.00-8.30am. All children and their whanau are welcome to come and enjoy a nutritious breakfast to kick start their day.
