" A friendly, caring school with quality learning and quality behaviour that respects the needs of the individual student in the spirit of partnership between the school, caregivers and the community."

WE APOLOGISE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE, BUT WE WILL BE HAVING A TEACHER ONLY DAY ON MONDAY 22ND OF JULY
- DAY 1 OF NEXT TERM.
WHAKATANE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED FOR INSTRUCTION ON THIS DAY.
SCHOOL RESUMES TUESDAY 23RD JULY.
Whakatane Community of Learning – Information Sharing
Recent changes in the education sector have led to the establishment of Communities of Learning, where schools, early childhood and other educational institutes work together to improve educational outcomes for children within a community of learners.
The Whakatane Community of Learners or Kahui Ako’ consists of the following schools; Apanui, Allandale, James Street, Nukuhou North, Ohope Beach, Paroa, St Joseph’s Whakatane, Trident, Whakatane High and Whakatane Intermediate; and also involves numerous early childhood centres
The Whakatane Kahui Ako works with all member schools and organisations to ‘Enrich partnerships, grow capability and strengthen engagement for equitable outcomes and success for our community’.
In order that the Kahui Ako works from an evidence base, schools and organisations are sharing information, this includes attendance, student achievement and learning needs information. Information shared is non-identifiable data and is used help determine patterns and trends across the community of learning in order to inform needs, supports, funding and possible professional development for schools.
BREAKFAST CLUB – Did you know that your child is welcome to attend our daily Breakfast Club? Teacher Aide (Odessa) organises a free basic breakfast in Room 12 from 8.00am. Also if anyone out there has spare fruit on their trees, we would love to receive it to add to the breakfasts.
Our mid-year interviews will be held on:
Wednesday afternoon 3rd July from 12.45pm - 6.00pm and on Thursday afternoon 4th July from 3.15pm - 5.45pm.
We invite and encourage all parents/caregivers to take this opportunity to discuss their child’s progress in these 15 minute interviews. There will be a chance to reflect on the goals set in Term One.
School will close at 12noon on Wednesday 3rd July. Buses will run at the normal time of 3.00pm and bus students will be supervised until then. Thursday is a normal school day.
INTERVIEWS CAN BE BOOKED BY VISITING

THE BOOKING SITE WILL BE OPEN FROM 9.00AM THURSDAY 6TH JUNE.
Select your preferred interview time. You will receive confirmation by email within minutes of your booking. If you do not have internet access, your child can request an interview time from their teacher. The school office can also book you a time if you call 308 6480. It is our goal to have all parents/caregivers attend these important interviews.
