Term 2 Student Achievement Discussion and Reporting
As we are all aware the COVID 19 pandemic has caused disruption to the normal school assessment and reporting cycles. The government has addressed this in the NCEA credit system for our secondary students.
At Kohimarama School we had to cancel our initial Student Achievement Discussion scheduled at the end of term 1 2020, due to being in lockdown.
On returning to school we placed great emphasis on student wellbeing and allaying anxiety and settling them into the school routine again.
At the end of Term 2, written school reports would usually be sent home. As you would appreciate to do this immediately on return to school would not provide us with reliable data. Therefore, we are unable to generate a SchoolTalk report at this time.
We have rescheduled Student Achievement Discussions to be held at the end of Term 2 (week 2, 1st & 2nd July). At this student achievement discussion you can expect a one page document giving you a visual picture of how your child is tracking towards achieving the expected outcomes by the end of the school year in reading, writing and mathematics. This document will provide you with the next learning steps and areas for development. The SAD will be undertaken with you and your child. We have asked students to share a completed piece of work that they are proud of to discuss with you.
At the end of term 3 2020 we will hold our usual student achievement discussions finishing with our usual schooltalk report at the end of the year.
Details of the Student Achievement Discussions are as follows:
Wednesday 1st July Students to be collected at 1pm
1.30pm-6pm – Student Achievement Discussions
Thursday 2nd July Normal school programme
3.30pm-8pm – Student Achievement Discussions
Bookings open on Wednesday 10th June at 9am and close on Monday 29th June at 9am.

Kapa Haka – Can you help?
Kia ora koutou whanau of Kohimarama.
Are you a filmmaker? Do you have film and voice recording equipment? Are you a video editing whizz?
The Kohimarama Kapa Haka Roopu have a new school song that we would like to debut to the school community with a music video. But we need your tautoko, support!
If you have any film and recording equipment we could borrow, or you are able to lend some of your time to the Kapa Haka roopu, then please email Kate Cadzow at firstname.lastname@example.org
At the end of last term there was approximately $1,500 worth of fleeces in our lost property. We do try to return as much lost property to the children when we can, but this can only be done if the items are named. Please ensure all school uniform is labelled.
If your children are sick, they should stay home (phone Healthline or their GP and get tested if they have cold or flu symptoms). Continue to regularly wash and dry hands, sneeze and cough into elbows.
If you have a child staying home for any reason please contact the school office by email or phone the absentee line 09 930 9826. Childs name, room number and reason for absence must be provided. If no reason for absence is given your child will be marked with an unjustified absence.
Latest Sports Update
With the change to Alert Level 1, I will be releasing a schedule for team practices later this week.
Auckland Netball is expected to confirm later this week any fee reductions. Once we know what the reduction will be, those that have paid via Kindo will be reimbursed the full amount of $77 back into their Kindo account. We will then send a notification of the new amount to be paid via Kindo. For those who paid directly to the schools account we will be in touch with you individually to refund the difference between the old and new amounts. We expect notification shortly from Auckland Netball regarding the new fees. Please be patient, Auckland Netball is working as hard as they can.
Term 3 Games are scheduled as follows;
