Kaikorai Rebuild by Simon Clarke

Property News - June

Water tight!

Progress on the first seven classes is on track and we are looking at a moving in date some time in August.  A few weeks ahead of schedule fingers crossed!

It will be all "hands on deck" as we need to move everything out of the senior classes and storage rooms as soon as we receive the new spaces.  The normal learning programme may be interrupted during this week and would appreciate any volunteers who can help.  We will send out more information once a final date has been locked in.

The building is really starting to take shape and teachers are excited about how they will use the new spaces.  The juniors and seniors will be moving in first with the current middles joining some time next year. 

We are excited to present to you the final VR panoramas with the selected colour schemes.



Learning street:


As you can imagine a number of changes will need to happen next term as we move in.  Things change very quickly but at this point and time we are planning for the following

  • Room 1, 1A, 2, 2A, 7,9 and 10 will move to the new building and become, Ono (6), Whitu (7), Waru (8) Iwa(9), Tekau (10), Tekau mā tahi (11), Tekau mā rua(12)
  • Room 3, 4, 5 and 6 will move to the junior block and library for two weeks while the first half of the main block is demolished.  Once this is completed and the building has its systems reconnected they will return to their original classrooms until next March/April when their new classes will be ready.
  • Room 6 will be known as a name that the students will decide until they move in as it will be confusing to have two classes named room 6.
  • Room 12 will become Room 13
  • The signage for the rooms will be in a wide variety of languages.  If you would like your culture's language captured here please let me know at principal@kaikorai.school.nz
  • We think the office and sick bay will be temporarily set up in the new building while demotion takes place and then move to the current Room 8.
  • Year 2 students will move to the new buildings this year and then return to the existing buildings for Term 1 2022 before finally moving into their newly built classes.
