Kia ora Koutou


Welcome to 2020!


We enjoyed meeting many of you at He Hui Mihimihi and we have had a great first few weeks getting to know your children.


Again this year Karori Normal School teams are all named after New Zealand Trees. The Year 2 cohort is named Team Mānuka. 


Our teaching team is:

  • Schiehallion Mckelvie (Ms Mckelvie) in Room 14

  • Pam Carr (Ms Pam) in Room 15 

  • Sam Butts (Mr Butts) in Room 16

  • Libby Allwood (Mrs Allwood) in Room 17


Celebration Mornings

We will hold a celebration morning later in the term. This will be a chance for your child to celebrate their learning and achievements over the term. A date for this morning will be confirmed over the coming weeks.


Home Reading

Your child will bring home a reader approximately three to four times a week. Some of the books will be chosen by the teacher and will be at their instructional level. Other books will be chosen by the children themselves. 


General reminders:

Please ensure your child has a water bottle and sunhat each day. 

They also need a change of clothes in their bag.

Please remind your child that they are welcome to bring items to play with at break times, however it is not the school's or class teacher's responsibility if they get lost or broken - please talk with your child so they understand this. 


The beginning of the year can be very busy, so please do come and see us if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child. The more we communicate and work together, the better it is for your child.


Warm Regards,

Rōpū Mānuka
