2019 Secondary NCEA Course Selection Week:
This week, all Year 10 – Year 12 students are selecting their subjects for next year through the Student/Parental portal on the Kaikohe Christian School website, www.kcs.school.nz
Students may choose up to 7 subjects, however we recommend that they choose up to six subjects with one study selected as well. This means students will get 3 or 4 study periods per week to do homework and would give the student more opportunity to gain the higher quality grades of Merit or Excellence. For some students, two study b
Please discuss together with your son or daughter. Course information is also available on the site.
DERIVED GRADE SUMMARY RESULTS:
A BIG thank you to the students who worked very hard and aimed to get the best results possible at this point. Your effort is a great encouragement to us all.
All students who sat Derived Grade exams will receive a Results Summary so parents and caregivers can see how well their son or daughter is achieving at this point. Also teachers have made brief comments on this Results Summary.
Perseverance is the key to success.
My key encouraging verse for this period of time is:
Galatians 6: 9Let us not grow weary in doing well, for in due time we will reap a harvest, if we don’t give up!
NCEA Students: Enjoy your break time to get refreshed and plan in some good study time to be all set for the final countdown to your exams beginning week 5 next term.
INTERMEDIATE ENVIROSCHOOL WORK
Below are pictures of the year 7 and 8 students helping Justin Blaikie to strengthen the riverbank that runs through Rawiri Park in order to help not just the stability but also the water quality. Improving the local wai is not only a concern for Kaikohe but the wider community ranging from lake Omapere to the harbour.
Well done to all active students from Kaikohe Christian School!

Our junior girls Basketball Team lost their semi final to Northland College by 14pts to 9. This is a very creditable score line as all our girls barring one are year 8. A lack of understanding of the rules of Basketball was their downfall however we congratulate them for their Stirling effort.

Congratulations to Matireamakura Allen for winning the Kuku Korero Speech Competition which was held at Moerewa School last Friday. This comes on the back of Parehuia Allen coming second in the Maori Women’s Welfare League Junior Speech Competition that was held at Te Kura kaupapa Pukemiro last term. Matua Te Rangi Allen said that it was part of an ongoing plan to put Kaikohe Christian School out in the Maori Community upholding the name of Jesus. Being more proactive.
Next year the goal is to enter a Junior Maori, Junior English, Senior English, and Ta Hemi Henare in the Northern Region Secondary Schools Manu Korero Competition Term 2; a Junior Boy and Girl, Intermediate Girl, and a Senior Boy, in the Maori Women’s Welfare League Pu Korero Competition, Term 2; and a Junior Girl and Boy in the Kuku Korero Term 3.
Principal Mr Rogers is excited about the prospects and what they might bring in 2019. As the only Christian School nationwide entering Maori Speech Competitions it is an honour and a privilege to represent the Christian Community in such prestigious events.
“He toa takitini taku toa ehara I te toa takitahi”
