Kia ora

Our enrolment process for 2022 is continuing.

We would like all enrolments to have been completed as soon as possible to allow us to plan for next year. Also, if you would like your child to be considered for any of our Character Classes, they will need to have been enrolled by Friday 1 October at the latest. After this date, these classes will be removed from our online enrolment form.

When we moved to Alert Level 4 in August, we had only completed one day of enrolment interviews and as a result, there are many students who have not yet been interviewed. To address this, we have a catch-up day for interviews on Thursday 23 September between 8:00am and 10:40am, or between 2:00pm and 5:40pm. These interviews are optional, however, the information we get from these interviews assists us greatly for class placements. If you would like your child to have an interview, times can be booked by following this link: https://www.schoolinterviews.co.nz/code?code=pv8s7

On Tuesday 19 October, we will be holding an information hui for parents of and their Year 6 students who would like to be considered for character classes. At this hui, the teachers of our character classes will provide information about their particular class, then parents will be required to rank the order of preference for any of the classes they selected in the online enrolment form. This year, selection for these classes will be done via a ballot system. If you had selected one of the character classes on the online enrolment form, and are unable to attend the hui, please contact the school to put in your apologies.

Finally, Our school is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) school. This means that your child will complete a proportion of their work digitally. Our device of choice for digital learning is a Chromebook. If your child already has a device, they are most welcome to bring it to Kamo Intermediate School. We have a very small number of Chromebooks in the school that are shared out between classes, however, these are not enough for students to have one each. Our preference is that each child has their own device, which then means the learning is seamless between school and home. If your child is planning on moving to either Whangarei Girls High School or Kamo High School, they will also be using a Chromebook there, so purchasing now will ensure many years of use.
