Whakatane Intermediate School Student Orientation Programme 2023


The programme for the first day of school on January 31st, 2023 is as follows:

Returning Year 8 Students @ 9am - 10am.


All returning year 8 students will meet with their teacher in their classroom at 9am.

The purpose is to welcome them all back to school, discuss and set expectations for leadership, help arrange the classroom for the year and to organise the powhiri.

All students are expected to be in school uniform and on time.

Whanau are welcome to join their child as well and the day will finish at 10am.


Year 7 & new Year 8 Students from 10:30am


All Year 7 and new Year 8 students, together with their whanau, are invited to meet with their teacher in their classroom. Each whanau can select from three different times and choose the one that best suits them.

Each session lasts for an hour and will involve introductions, discussions about timetable/first week programme, general information, answer any questions & general Whakawhanaungatanga.

The purpose is to welcome all new students and whanau into school and set the year up for success.

All students are expected to be in school uniform.

The times are as follows: 10:30am, 12:00pm or 1:30pm and no appointment is necessary.


Unfortunately due to the scheduling of the day, the buses will not be running and we ask whanau to make other arrangements for transport. The school apologises for this inconvenience for the day. All buses will run as normal from Wednesday February 1st
