Welcome back to Term 2
School commences for term 2 on Monday 20th April.
We will be holding our annual Book Week the first week of term 2, with our Book Week parade on Wednesday 22nd April. There will be a lot of book related activities during the week and students are asked to come along dressed as their favourite book character on the Wednesday.
Remember Monday 27th April is a public holiday to commemorate Anzac Day.
We would like to invite interested parents to an information evening to be held on Thursday 28th May at 7 pm in the hall. We have a visiting expert Kathryn Berkett who will be doing a presentation on the development of the Primary students' brain.
This is followed by a Teacher Only Day on Friday 29th May when teachers will be involved in Professional Development with Kathryn.
A message from the Board of Trustees
The Kohimarama Board of Trustees along with other school Boards from the Eastern Bays has been involved in discussion around school crowding and zones, particularly related to St Heliers School. As a result of these discussions the Ministry of Education and School Boards have prepared proposed new zone boundaries for Kohimarama School, St Heliers School and St Thomas’ School. The proposed changes and affected streets were notified in the Eastern Bay Courier and we are now in a period of four weeks of consultation with school communities. The proposed changes do not affect any streets or houses currently in the Kohimarama School zone. The proposed changes would add some streets in to the school zone within the capacity of the school site. Please refer to the proposed zone description, zone map and a copy of the advertisement which link to the Board of Trustees page.
