Term Break 7th February

All Whanau are advised that there will be no school for Kaikohe East children on Thursday 6th February because it is Waitangi Day and no school on Friday 7th February. This day has been scheduled a term break so that we finish at the end of the year on a Friday and finish the year with the correct number of days at school.


School Parent Pamphlet

Included with this newsletter is our school parent pamphlet which includes a lot of information that we hope Whanau find helpful.


Subway lunches only

As from today for Term 1 only at this stage we will only be offering subway lunches due to Trumps Café closing down.

See the parent pamphlet for prices and menu.
