2022 Kohimarama School End of Year Picnic!

The colour run is for children Y8 and below. You can buy your ticket for $5 through Kindo and a wristband will be sent to your classroom next week.

Calendar Art

The stationery with your children’s artwork on it has arrived, it looks amazing and is being distributed today.

The PTA have decided to reopen Kindo for 10 days so those who missed out and those who are super impressed with the products have the opportunity to place an order. 

The new closing date for orders is 20 November. Please place your order on Kindo.

PTA Chairpersons

Julie and Lizzie have Chaired the PTA since the start of 2021 and will be stepping down at the end of 2022. We have a well established calendar of events and team of PTA supporters who help to make them happen, and are looking for new chairs to lead the PTA from next year. It is a great role for two people to share and puts you right at the heart of our awesome Kohimarama School community. If you are interested or have any questions please contact us on

Gala 2023

In September 2023 Kohimarama School will be holding a Gala and auction for the first time in 5 years! We have a great event planned with a venue, decorations and even a menu but have had to cancel it twice due to COVID restrictions.

We are looking for two awesome leaders as well as a team of supporters to help bring this event together. We need a leader to run the event and one to coordinate the auction items. If you are interested or have any questions please contact us on
