A special welcome to Emma-Jade Kapa, Mary-Jane Tuki, Skylar Mikaere, Dre-Parish Webster-Harding and Elijah O’Connor-Tagataese.  

We hope you have enjoyed your first week at Kaikohe East School!

Pink Shirt Day

Pink Shirt day was a fun-filled day acknowledging our staunch anti-bullying kaupapa here at Kaikohe East School.  We raised a whopping $150 to koha.


Well done to all netball players of the day last week. KKE  netballers: Fern Edmonds, Chelsey Reihana, Amaia Stillwell, Sari Stillwell, Naisha Singh, Rehutai Woodman, Kaylee Crouch, Teagan Stevens.

Just a reminder that we need to be at Lindvart Park at 3.30pm and games will finish approximately 4.45pm and please remind your child to wear the appropriate footwear (sneakers) and to bring a bottle of water.  All players are to meet after school at Room 15 for organisation.

We look forward to this week’s games. Mr Whippy will be at the games this week so if your child has a Player of the Day voucher please remind them to bring it to the game.
