A special welcome to the following new tamariki and their whānau; Peter Mischewski, Giselle Tutahi and Ruihi Henry.

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

School closed Monday

There will be no school this Monday due to it being Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Reports and Class letters home today

All children who have been at our school for 6 weeks or more will be bringing home in an envelope their mid-year report.  They will also bring home an updated class letter that shares some important classroom information. We trust both reports and class letters are helpful to whānau however if there are any matters you need some clarification on please do not hesitate to come and see your child’s/children’s teacher/s in the first instance.
