Kora Care After School Programme


Kora Care After School programme ~ now running

Once you have completed the registration for your children, you can phone the office by 2pm and ask for your child/ren to be in after school care any day any time of the year. Afternoon tea and getting their homework done is included in the price!

Please find the information flyer and enrolment form on our website. 

There are no fixed days required - this service can be used on a casual basis. 

Please note no enrolment form – no after school care, as this information is vital to us being able to provide adequate health and safety arrangements for your children. 

Charges for this service will be separate to your school account and will be emailed to you at the end of each week. Payments for this service will need to be paid weekly or fortnightly.

Stock Scheme 2019

Here at Korakonui School, we run a stock scheme as our major fundraising initiative. This money allows us to provide the best possible education for the kids in our community.  
How does it work?
We ask of our farming families, for a kind donation of a weaned calf. 
These donated calves are collected by the Stock Scheme Committee volunteers and relocated to grazing, through to maturity. 
If you are able to be a part of our successful stock scheme programme, by either donating a calf or being able to provide grazing, please contact the school office or
Tessa Honeyfield
Stock Scheme Co-ordinator
Phone 027 5277885
Email   tessahoneyfield@gmail.com
We so appreciate our farmers donating proceeds from their bobby calves and slinky's to the school. If you would like to nominate Korakonui School, please contact your run provider. 

Thank you for supporting Korakonui School
