Community Message from our Principal

Kia ora koutou 

Welcome back to Term 3. I hope that your children have managed to have an enjoyable holiday. It  was lovely to see so many students back at school yesterday. 

You may have seen that at the end of the holiday the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education have advised schools that they strongly recommend that masks are to be worn by everyone whilst  indoors. Please speak to your child so that they are aware that this is the expectation. Masks will be  provided if students have forgotten them and there will be signs up around the classrooms as a  reminder. Mask exemptions that were in place previously will still be current. If your child now  requires a mask exemption please email myself or their Dean or DP. If your child travels on a school  bus then please remind them that they still need to wear a mask. 

Nominations are now open for the Katikati College Board of Trustees. These elections take place every  3 years and all families should have received information on how to nominate someone for the Board.  Being on the Board is an extremely important role in governing our school. If you would like more  information on what it involves, please contact the College office. Nominations close midday  Wednesday 3 August. 

I would like to take the opportunity to remind you of some key events that are taking place over the  next few weeks:  

Wednesday 3 August - Open Day Tours 

There will be tours throughout the day of the College for any prospective enrolments in Year 6 or 8  for 2023. If you would like to come and visit and see what Katikati College has to offer, then please  contact the College office to arrange a time. 

Monday 8 August - Waihi College Sports Exchange 

Wednesday 24 August - Parent Teacher Interviews College closing at 1.20pm

Thursday 25 August - Ministry of Education Accord Teacher Only Day

Monday 29 August - Friday 2 September - Winter Tournament Week 

Good luck to all those students who are representing Katikati College in football, hockey and netball. 

Friday 2 September - Mid-term break 

The school will be closed on this day. 

Monday 5 - Friday 9 September - AIMS Games 

Good luck to our 75 students who are representing Katikati College in a wide range of sports and  events.


Please continue to read our newsletters, website and FaceBook for important dates and any further  information.  

I would like to welcome Ruvé Hyde-Coltman who will be joining us in the running of the canteen and  supporting the hospitality classes. 

Term 3 is always a busy term. Senior students need to make sure that they are focussed on their  studies; the end of their school year will come around very quickly. This term we will also be asking  the community for feedback on Katikati College. This will help to inform our planning for next year. 

Thank you for your ongoing support of the College. I look forward to continuing to connect with  parents and whānau throughout the term.
