Newsletter 201435 - 5 November 2014


A very special “Welcome” to the following students and their whānau to our school this week: Hinewai Tata, Reihana Samuels, Ardie Rogers-Herbert, Phillip Baker.


Year 6 Whānau BBQ

All Year 6 students will bring home a letter today detailing the BBQ event to be held at the Kaikohe Intermediate School this afternoon, all are encouraged to attend this free meet and greet from 5.30pm at Kaikohe Intermediate.


Junior Trip

Wow! What an amazing day the Juniors had out in the Bay. They saw dolphins, seals, whales, penguins and other marine life. Thanks to our staff for their organisation and to Whānau for their support on the day. Here are some pics from their day out!


School Touch

Touch rugby started last Thursday at Lindvart Park. We would like to remind all children and whānau that in order for children to play they need to return their permission slips, No permission, no game. Fees are $15 each. We still require parent helpers/coaches for U7’s, U9’s and U11’s. All help is appreciated! Please contact us at school if you can help.


Classes for 2015

Class organisation for 2015 has been sorted for next year. Any parents are welcome to phone the school office if they wish to have confirmed which class/classes they are in, we are considering a “transition day” later in the term whereby children move into their 2015 classroom for the day.


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!


School Uniform 2015

We will be expecting all children in school uniform by the beginning of next year so come and see Kohi at the office about part time payments or purchase now!

School Polo shirts are $35 and you will receive a free pair of black pants while stocks last.

We also are ordering the polar fleece jacket (full or half zip) These will be priced according to sizes therefore from a size 6 – 14 will be $55 each any size bigger will cost $65 each.


End of Year Celebration

On Wednesday 10th December we will be having a “Run, Jump, Throw” Day and Hāngi for our End of Year Whānau Celebration, we welcome all whānau and friends to come along to enjoy the day!


Year 6 Transition Visits

All Year 6 children will on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th November be visiting Kaikohe Intermediate School in preparation for 2015. All Whānau are welcome to attend on either of these two days to see what great work is happening at Kaikohe Intermediate School. The Year 6 children will at this time meet teachers, be involved in activities and will gain some insight into how Year 7 might be for them in 2015.


Hāngi Helpers

The school will be preparing hāngi to sell at the Kaikohe Christmas Parade on Friday 28th November. Any parents/whānau who are able to come along and help us please contact the office. We need firewood, clean newspaper and plastic bags for this also. Please drop any supplies off at the school office.
