We expect you are in full swing of practicing the Quizathon questions at home, remember the Quiz will be this Wednesday, 2nd June, yes tomorrow! It’s not too late to get some last minute study in and some more sponsors. I have learnt a lot about the history of the school from the questions!

Once the quiz is over please return the completed form to the office, where there is a blue and silver wrapped box. We would appreciate if you can transfer the quiz money to the PTA account rather than money coming to school. If that is not possible please return the money with the competed form to the office. There are prizes up for grabs so make sure you get your form in! No later than June 11th.

Direct payment to Kohimarama School PTA 12-3027-0332092-00. Please ensure you reference Your Childs Name and Class Room Number


Trivia Night: Around the World! 

Trivia night is back on June 18! 

We have had a great response and tables are selling out. If you are still putting together a table or would like us to place you at a table please let us know HERE If you have not been before it is a great way to meet other parents at the school and is a really fun night.

As a reminder you can form a table of 8-12 and you can pre-order pizza and wine to have waiting for you when you arrive. The doors open at 6.00pm and the quiz will run from 6.30-9.00pm and the theme this year is related to anything Around the World.     

If your class hasn’t had a chance to hold an event yet then this could be a good occasion to do so and form a table together.  Be sure to register your table so you don’t miss out!

Direct payment to Kohimarama School PTA 12-3027-0332092-00. Please ensure you reference Trivia and Your Team Name. Details regarding cost etc can be found HERE
