A special welcome to the following new tamariki and their whānau; Antonio Stephens-Palmer, Avaya Drummond-Tauteka and Kaia Mischewski.

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

Junior School Class Changes

There have been a few class changes this week to accommodate for all our new 5 year old enrolments.  

Reports and Class Letters 

All children who have been at our school for 6 weeks or more will have brought home last Wednesday their school report and class letter.  If any whānau wish to discuss any matters in either reports/class letters please come and see in the first instance your child’s/children’s teacher/s.

Term 3-4 Organisation

At the end of Term 2 we farewell and thank Whaea Barbara who has been relieving in Room 9. We welcome back from Maternity leave Whaea Tyme Rata.

After the first few weeks of Term 3 we will farewell and thank Whaea Renee who will go on Maternity Leave.  Room 12 will not reopen in Term 3.  By now all Room 12 whānau/children should know what class they will join at the start of term 3.  Once again any queries please come and see us.

Hearing and Vision Tester

This Friday at 9.30am we have the Hearing and Vision nurse here to test all 5 year olds who have missed their before school check and to re-test any other children on their records.

Nurses Here Every Tuesday

We are lucky to have 2 nurses visit our kura every Tuesday to check on any health matters that our children may have.  We do need whānau consent for this so if you haven’t already please request a form to fill out or give Whaea Chicky a call and she will sign on your behalf.
