Starting school is a special and important time for any child.

It is vital for their future educational well-being that their first school experiences are positive  We want to ensure that your child is happy at school - when they are happy, the best learning can happen.

At Kaikorai Primary School we strive to ensure that your child is warmly welcomed and feels secure within their new class.

We place great value on working with whānau of new students in order to make this transition an easy one for all. Communication between you and your child’s teacher is vital.  Please feel free to approach either myself or any of our staff to arrange a meeting to discuss your child’s progress.

At Kaikorai we pride ourselves on our interesting and innovative programmes. Our curriculum is rich and varied and all curriculum areas are integrated through a new theme each term. 

We also see the importance of having a wide skill set. We encourage children to be ‘well rounded’ and offer a myriad of sporting, cultural and social opportunities to develop their skills and interests. 

We look forward to meeting you and your child.  Please contact me if you would like further information or a guided tour of the school.
