Term 1, Week 6 — School news, upcoming dates and notices

Meet the Teacher

After numerous attempts to organise our Meet the Teacher we have rescheduled the event on Thursday 18th March. There will be no picnic at this rescheduled event rather we would like families to come to school and to visit their children’s classes at these designated times;

  • Kiri Team (Rooms 1-5) from 6.00-6.15pm
  • Cowley Team (Rooms 6-8, 16,17, 25, 26) from 6.15pm to 6.30pm
  • Hillary Team (Rooms 9-15) from 6.30-6.45pm
  • Snell Team (Rooms 18-23) from 6.445-7.00pm.

I am hoping that this event will go ahead without disruption. Third time lucky.

The Kohimarama Way  –  Reliability

You practise reliability by making agreements you can keep, then do everything in your power to do what you agreed to do.  Give your best effort to every job, and take your responsibilities seriously.  Plan ahead and leave enough time to finish what you start.  If problems arise, find another way.  Return what you borrow.  Most of all keep your word.


Teacher Only Days

Please be aware of Teacher Only Days for this year. Thursday 1st April & Tuesday 26th October.

Road Patrols – Parent Help Needed

Are you able to support our students crossing Rawhitiroa Road or Kohimarama Rd safely in the mornings 8.30 to 8.55 am?  If you are interested in finding out more and think you can help, please contact Meegan Hill

Sports Notices

Missing player of the day trophies

Do you have a Kohimarama school player of the day trophy at home ?  We are missing a number for our Basketball, Netball and Touch teams.
Any trophies that are located can be returned to the school office.

Swimming Sports

Our annual swimming sports were cancelled during our Alert Level 3 lockdown. We have been trying to reschedule the event with the college but as yet have not been able to get a slot. We are continuing to look for an opportunity to hold our swimming sports later this term.
