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.

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 parents of our new entrants in order to make this transition an easy one for the children. Communication between the parents 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. Considerable emphasis is placed on the key learning areas of English and Mathematics.  I.T. is used throughout the curriculum and children are taught and encouraged to develop their own questions, find information and present new ideas in a meaningful way.

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.
