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.

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.
