Children arriving at school before 8.25am

Whānau are reminded that while staff are often at school prior to 8.25am they are preparing for the day ahead and not supervising children. We have a number of children arriving at school very early in the morning and would encourage whānau to seek alternative arrangements so that their child is at school closer to 8.25am. Similarly at the end of the day we have children being collected at times well after 3pm. We would appreciate whānau co-operation.


Mainfreight Calendar Awards

Special congratulations to the following children who had their art work selected to be included in one of the 2020 Mainfreight calendars, Darcy Hughes, Paris Yukich and Naisha Singh. 


Planning for 2020 Classes and resources

Teachers are currently starting to organise for 2020. If whānau have any ideas about new ideas, resources or comments about 2020 please come and see your child’s class teacher or send an email to admin@kaikeast.school.nz with your ideas and contact number in case further details are needed. 

This includes any requests for your child’s class for next year.
