Korakonui School - Small enough to care yet big enough to challenge and inspire

Weekly Notices

for Monday 17th June 2019

Current notices are listed below. Old notices from the last month (if any) are listed below them.

16 June 2019 - 1 July 2019

Roll Return Day - Monday 1st July

Twice a year the Ministry of Education requires schools to complete
an official roll count of students enrolled at our school.
This is an important process as our future funding and staffing
is calculated on these numbers. 
Monday 1st July is the next official roll count day.
If your child, or children are away on Monday 1st July,
please send/email a brief note explaining their absence
(e.g. sickness, appointment, home circumstances etc.)
This is to assure the Ministry of Education that we have
the exact number of students that we say we have.
16 June 2019 - 4 July 2019

Student Profile Update Form


Dear Parents/Caregivers

A Student Profile Update Form for each of your children attending Korakonui School, has been sent home with the eldest child in your family.
Please can you check that all the details on this form are correct: eg: cell phone numbers, emergency 
contacts, medical information etc.

Focusing on the medical information, with the recent number of measles cases rising in New Zealand
– please indicate if your child is fully immunised or not at all, if your child can have pamol and/or ibuprofen 
– or update additions and amendments.

I so appreciate you taking the time to have the correct information noted.

Please return this/these forms back to the school office. Thank you.

Kindest Regards

14 June 2019 - 20 June 2019
