A very special “Welcome” to the following students and their whānau to our school this week: Nepia Hepi-Tetitaha.


Please VOTE!

This year the Election will be on the 20th September and Kaikohe East School is a polling booth!


Please start bringing “Yes I Voted” Stickers to school as soon as possible, if you have more than one child at school, the stickers will be divided equally between their classes.  The class with the most stickers wins a trip to Paihia!!


Kai at school

All Whānau please remember that we have plenty of yummy kai at school we are more than happy to give your child/children throughout the day. Please do not think that because you don’t have kai for breakfast or lunch that you need to keep your child/children at home. Send them to school, we have weetbix, milk, bread etc for toast and lots of snack foods!
