Welcome to Term Two

This week we would like to welcome James Edmonds to Room 3.


Lateness to School

Could all whanau remember that school begins at 8.50am so it is important that all tamariki are at school by this time please.


Sports Fee Paid By School

After the success of last year’s trial, we have decided to provide this service again this year.  Any tamariki wishing to play Saturday Hockey, Netball for the school, or who play for Kaikohe Rugby Club or any Kaikohe League Club the school will cover your season fee. The aim of this initiative is to try to encourage as many of our tamariki to play sport and also to encourage whanau to come along and support them.
