What's New?

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.

Principal's Welcome
Kohimarama School has been at the heart of the Kohimarama community for a very long time and has stood the test of time as has our motto 'Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve'. While our beautiful site has expanded and developed over time our New Entrants are still watched over by the original 1921 school building.

I am proud to lead a school that truly embraces our purpose:
"To instil a passion for life-long learning and for making
positive contributions to society
Our children learn to belong and achieve through rich and varied learning experiences as we prepare them to be well-rounded learners and leaders of the future. This is supported by many opportunities within and beyond the curriculum including education outside the classroom, school sport, the school band programme, the choir, dance groups, Kapa Haka and the hotly contested house challenge system. While the ‘Kohi Way’ values programme supports our desire to develop positive habits and character in our children.

The staff are empowered to be educational leaders through collegial support and sharing and their own rich professional learning experiences, as we identify and respond to the developing needs of our 21st century learners.

The school parents are informed and engaged in the life of the school through the Parent Teacher Association, school events, regular parent helper roles and participation in information evenings and student achievement discussions. Kohimarama School parents continue to give generously through school donations and fundraising to enable the school to enhance teaching and learning facilities and resources.

We welcome the participation and contribution of our wider community which enhances many learning opportunities and sees our school facilities well utilized with many sporting and cultural activities available to children after school.

Welcome to Kohimarama School
