Kids In Need

Kids in Need
We know that this year has been an extremely difficult year for many families and tamariki. This Christmas KĊrakonui are hoping to collect donations for those most in need through the Waikato based charity 'Kids in Need' for children aged 0-17
'Kids in Need Waikato believe that every child should experience the joy of opening a gift on Christmas morning, and that's why we need your help. This year you can help by purchasing BRAND NEW; pyjamas and clothing, underwear and socks, toys, stationery, books and school equipment, reading books, shoes, colouring books and pencils, lego and duplo, toiletries, balls and games, backpacks, scooters and skateboards.'
All donations need to be brand new!
This year we will be collecting donations at the school office!
Here is a list provided by kids in need if you would like some ideas! https://www.kidsinneed.co.nz/shop/
Thank you for support and donations!

Ministry Requirement for Students 12 and over

Just informing you that it is now a Ministry requirement for all students 12 and over to wear a face mask on school transport (under all alert levels).  Therefore this will affect the Bayley students that catch the bus, as well as Bayley students going to tech. 

Juice Iceblocks For Sale

Ice Blocks are for sale at morning tea time 
every Friday - $1 each

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.
