Message from our Principal

Kia ora koutou


Nau mai, haere mai to Term 2. We are excited to welcome all our students back, but in particular a number of new students starting with us. We will welcome them with a pōwhiri and they will be inducted over the week. During the holidays, I was very proud of the large number of our students who represented themselves and our kura at the ANZAC celebrations at Tuapiro Marae, Katikati Memorial Square and Lexham Park. I hope you managed to read the article in The Weekend Sun of our Head Students interacting and learning more about the story of Lieutenant Russell Freeland Walford. Here is the link to the article. 


I would like to draw your attention to a number of significant events occurring this term:


  • Thursday 2 May - ANZAC Day Reflection Assembly.
  • Monday 13 May - Paid Union Meeting - school will close early on this day
  • Friday 17 May - Katikati College Cross Country  /  Pink Shirt Day
  • Monday 3 June - King’s Birthday Weekend
  • Thursday 20 June - Matariki Celebration at Te Rereatukahia Marae


Attendance at school continues to be a priority - regular attendance is classed as being at school 90 - 100% of the time. This equates to one day off school every 2 weeks. Regular attendance at school allows students to feel better connected to their peers and other adults. It provides an opportunity not just for academic learning but to practice the “soft-skills” of interacting with others. These skills are seen as essential by future employers. Please ensure that your child is attending school every day that they can. This includes attending form time which starts at 8.30am. If you need assistance with getting your child to attend school regularly, please contact their form teacher or dean in the first instance. If a student is arriving late to school or leaving early they need to sign in or out at the student office. We do also need to hear from a parent or caregiver - please either phone (07) 5490434, email (absence@katikaticollege.school.nz) or text (029) 7705379.


I would also like to remind you that the ban of mobile phones at school continues this term. This was well received by students and staff last term. Our staff would like to thank you for your support with this change. The ban means that mobile phones should remain at home and if they do come to school, they are off and in the student’s bag from 8.30 am to 3.05 pm. 


As we move into the cooler terms we will be trialling a “normal timetable” on Thursday’s. This means that school will start as usual at 8.30am with form time. This trial is to support a more settled and consistent start to the school day. If you have feedback on this arrangement, please contact me directly through the principal’s email. 


Following the community consultation at the end of 2022, we have been reflecting on the College crest and house names and whether or not they reflect who we are today. During this term, we will be carrying out consultation on the College crest and the house names. This consultation will involve students, staff, parents and the wider community. There will be more information soon regarding this.


Occasionally the school takes photographs of students or samples of their work to record student activities and achievements.  We would like to use these photos and images in our school newsletter, on our Facebook page, our website or other college publications to share our student achievements and success with our community or promote our college. To assist us with ensuring our records are up-to-date, if you DO NOT want your child’s photo or work to be used or shared by the school please email principal@katikaticollege.school.nz .


I once again look forward to connecting further with whānau and the community as winter sports begin, performances take place and events where the community have opportunities to come into school. Thank you for your continued support of Katikati College.
