Hats for Term 4

As part of our sun smart commitment we ask that all children wear a hat during the summer months of Term 4. Please ensure that your child brings a named hat to school. The hat can be left at school and taken home regularly for washing.


2013 Ideas

Currently we are making plans for 2013. If you have any ideas about what we could purchase, do, or you have an idea to share please emailchicky@kaikeast.school.nz so that your thoughts can be considered.


2013 Class Lists

We are also currently planning classes for 2013. If whānau have any requests as to which class or teacher they would like their child or children to have for next year please give Whaea Chicky a phone call and if possible this will happen. At this stage we know only of Whaea Robin who will be sadly leaving us at the end of the year. It is likely that Whaea Stevie will be the teacher in Tumanako.
