Welcome to Kohimarama School’s online auction! This auction was intended to coincide with Kohimarama School’s Centennial Celebrations, unfortunately Covid cancelled those plans but it goes live today and will stay open until 9pm April 11th.

This year we are fundraising to cover part of Cowley playground with Astro grass, with sails above to provide shade. This will allow the children to eat and play in this area protected from the sun.

We have a huge range of products on offer and there is something for everyone and every budget. we have some beautiful pieces of art and homewares to offer which will be on display outside the school gates before and after school on Thursday and Friday.

It’s time to register with your email at the below link and start bidding!
