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.


Planning and 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. 


Bus Bay Reminder

Whānau are reminded that the bus bay by the sandpit is not for cars, only buses. Please do not park in the school bus bay.


Reports home

End of Year reports are being completed now and will be ready to send home soon. At times we are asked to provide a report for the mother and the father of a child, if this is what you require please be sure to let us know so we can arrange that.

Photo Orders

Photos have now arrived. Thank you for your patience. Should you want to come and collect them from the office please do so. We are not keen on sending them home with children just in case they get damaged or lost however if you are ok for your child to do so please contact us and we will send them home. Any further queries re photos must be directed to them.

Whānau are encouraged to complete enrolment forms for the Year 7 option they have chosen for their Year 6 child/children.
