A Message from the Principal

In partnership with Cyclone Technology, Cyclone have created a BYOD (Chromebook) Bundle. This has been created to help guide parents with the type of Chromebooks needed for the students. Cyclone have managed to secure an excellent price. If you would like to know more information please follow the link below.

Please note that this is optional.

The Kohimarama Way – Honesty

Being honest may not get you a lot of friends, but it will always get you the right ones.

School Assembly Changes for Term 4

Due to the increase in school roll size, we are now required to split our school assemblies into two. Therefore our Senior School Assemblies (Snell and Hillary) will be held at 9.15am on Fridays fortnightly and Junior Assemblies (Cowley and Kiri) will be held at 10.15am on the same fortnight. These are listed on the school calendar.

Walking School Bus Ice Block Day

On Monday 16th November at 1pm the Walking School Bus walkers will get a free iceblock.
