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

Weekly Notices

Notices for Week 4 Term 1 2021 - starting Monday 22nd February

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

Roll Return Day - Monday 1 March 2021

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 March is the next official roll count day. 
If your child, or children are away on Monday 1st March,
please send a brief note or email, 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.

Board Of Trustees Meeting

Our next Board of Trustees Meeting for 2021 will be held on 
Thursday 4th March at 7pm at the school.

(Please note date change)

All Welcome

We Are Swimming Everyday

Remember to bring ... your togs, swim cap (if needed), goggles and towel for swimming everyday this term, to ready themselves for our swimming sports.

If your child is not swimming for health reasons, a note is required each day.

Being Sun Smart at Korakonui


With this current beautiful summer sunshine, students are required to wear a brimmed hat for school. Caps are no longer accepted.

These Korakonui hats are available for purchase at the school office for $8 and can be charged to your school account.

No hat equals spending your break time under the sun shelter.

Thank you to our Board of Trustees for subsidising our school green wide brimmed hats for our students.
