My name is Chrissy Matenga and I am the new entrant teacher for our Bi-lingual Roopu.
At Kaiti School we value our tamariki who are beginning their learning journey with us. We provide a number of transition programs to support new tamariki and whanau to our kura.
Firstly Nga Iti Pounamu, runs once a week. To register your interest please contact the office to book a place and to receive an information pack about the program we run.
All whanau are welcome to come along to transition to look at the learning environment and to meet both the tamariki and the teacher.
The purpose of our transition program is to help children settle into school life by establishing friendships, engaging in class activities and routines to help them be confident in their new learning environment. I look forward to meeting new whanau to our Kura.
Take a look at our whanau sharing what they know at Nga Iti Pounamu.
