A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1


Tena koutou whanau ma – warm greetings to everyone.



Today I want to continue to emphasise the importance of attending school every day. Please take a stand with us to encourage this important habit. I have discussed previously how it is often easier to be lenient with our young ones when they ask to stay home for the day, but I would like to remind us all that there is a learning impact with any absence. If you are facing requests to “stay home” my encouragement to you is to make it hard for your child to stay home by insisting that they go to school (unless of course they are unwell).


Unfortunately I am needing to respond to a challenge we are facing with how our students care for their learning devices, specifically their Chromebooks. With our primary children this is not such an issue because the classroom teachers are able to manage the storage and retrieval within their classroom settings. For our Year 9 to 13 students we need to rely on them to take great responsibility in the care of these expensive devices. With regret, there is a significant number of damaged and missing devices that we now need to repair if possible, or to replace them if they can’t be repaired. As a result we will need to charge a deposit for these devices for our Year 9 to 13 students. I will send a letter home explaining the charge (refundable at the end of the year) to provide clarity for whanau.

Urupukapuka CampTena Koutou whanau ma,

A Middle School camp has been arranged this term at Urupukapuka Island for both Excel (Mrs Baines) and Courage (Mrs Whui) classes. The camp shall run from Wednesday 22nd March (week 8) until Friday 24th March.

The intention is for our students to develop stronger relationships across the middle school cohort as there are greater mixed curricular activities planned throughout this year, as well as learning about the historical significance of this island, the many Pa sites that are located and to experience ‘survival’ and gathering of kai moana.  

The cost is $30 per child. 

Payments can be made at the school office OR online using the school bank details:

Kaikohe Christian School

ASB 12-3097-0297165-00

Bank Reference: Please ensure that you add your child’s name.  

We know that costs can be an issue so Psalm in the office is able to arrange regular installments spread throughout the year if this is requested.

Further information shall follow but for now we would like confirmation of those attending to ensure that booking numbers are precise. If you decide to not send your child to camp you shall need to make alternative arrangements for them at home.

PLEASE, return the attached response slip to the school office by Friday of week 3 (17th Feb). We shall assume that non-returned slips imply that children shall not be attending camp.

Many thanks,

David Prickett



Our year 3-6 and year 7-8 girls had the opportunity to play in a all girls football tournament on Tuesday to encourage girls about playing football. This tournament was to bring awareness about the New Zealand Women’s football world cup that is being held in New Zealand and Australia this year. We had one of our amazing students who gave her own time and also lunch times to train these girls.  WELL DONE GIRLS
