During the two years your child is at Kaitao they will take part in a camp one year and a Noho Marae the other. Camp/Noho is an important part of intermediate students developing belonging in their new school. The camp experience helps teach students to have confidence in themselves, meet and make new friends and to get on with others in a variety of new situations.
Throughout the rest of the year, all classes attend a variety of school trips and EOTC excursions to enrich the integrated and STEAM approach.
Camp/Noho is held in February/March each year. We attempt to make them no more than $250 per student. We understand that this is a considerable cost and are happy for whanau to start paying this by automatic payment, even in small amounts. Please contact the school office for the school bank details, or add to your current automatic payment using the reference (camp 2022). Families experiencing hardship can apply to our Board of Trustees for discretionary/emergency support.
If parents wish to act as helpers on any overnight camp, they need to be Police Vetted. Forms are available
on our website, at the school office or in our enrolment pack. Forms need to be completed and returned to the office six weeks prior to the event.
PLEASE COMPLETE THE POLICE VETTING FORM ALONG WITH YOUR ENROLMENT IF YOU WISH TO ACT AS AN OVERNIGHT HELPER!
