Kōwhai News Term 3 Week 10

 Kia ora Kōwhai whānau, 

What a whirlwind term it has been! We have had a fantastic last two weeks of term, with visits from the NZ Army Band and enjoying all our Kōwhai talent show performances. The students that chose to attend the football sessions with Cashmere Technical Football Club enjoyed their last session in lovely sunshine on Wednesday. 

Talent Show

The whole school talent show is on tomorrow from 1.45. Due to limited space in the hall with the whole school attending, we are asking only caregivers of the children performing come along to see the show. 

Museum Trip

Please watch out for another blog post tomorrow that has a letter about our upcoming museum trips on the 22nd and 23rd of October. We will need some parent volunteers for this so please email your child's homeroom teacher if you are able to help. 

Calendar Art

Make sure you have placed your order for your child's Kiwiana calendar art. This closes on Monday the 28th of September. 

Water Safety Skills Survey

Keep your eyes peeled for a survey that will come out tomorrow for your to fill in about your child's confidence in the water. 


With the lovely weather we have had over the last week, we have had lots of children exploring outside during Discovery time. The students have been building, making furniture, creating obstacles course. using Beebots to transport things and generally being very creative in their learning.
