Welcome to Kowhai Awhina Webpage 2020



What’s happening in 2020?

This year our overarching theme is:

 Ko Wai Au?  Ko Wai Tātou?  Ko Hea Tātou? 

Who am I? Who are we? Where are we?

We have an exciting year ahead!


Please remember that our classrooms have an ‘open door’ policy and we welcome you all into our learning space.

We encourage whānau and friends to come and familiarise themselves with our classroom and to see the learning that is happening.


 Our Fabulous Kowhai Team 2020

Mrs Heather Foreman (Team Leader/Kowhai Awhina Tahi)

Mrs Nikita Riggans (Kowhai Awhina Rua)

Miss Hannah Liebezeit (Kowhai Awhina Toru)


We are lucky to be part of a beautifully sunny Summer and we need to keep safe in the heat! Please bring your hat to school and apply sunblock before arriving.

When visiting Parakai Pools for our swim sessions, please wear rash shirts and additional sunblock to stay sun safe.

Whanau Hui

Whole School Whanau Hui is held at 1:45 every Monday

(except the first week of term)


In the Kowhai Team, Home Learning is sent home via Seesaw and in our Home Learning books. The only thing we require is for you to read with your child each night. Check the Home Learning for any upcoming events and notices that you need to be aware of.
