Nau Mai, Haere Mai!

Welcome to Ruma Kaitaki!  We are energetic and proud role models of Turua School who always fulfill our duties. Our kaiako are Mrs Rakich and Miss Hayley. We are looking forward to working together and learning lots of exciting and new things in 2019!


The Turua School Weekly Newsletters are now sent in an e-format. Don’t forget to check regularly each week to find out about what’s happening in the the school community.

If you have any concerns about your child’s well being or progress, please feel free to email us anytime or have a word before or after school. At times we may need to make an appointment to discuss matters further –  


Kaitaki is connected to an app called SeeSaw. This is like our very own class Facebook and is accessible only to the Parents, Family and Students of Kaitaki.  SeeSaw has a message facility that allows us to message parents individually. (See us to get connected – it is important that all parents are connected)


Our library day is Monday. All library books need to be returned to the library each week so that your child can get new books out.


Spelling homework is given every Monday.

Reading every night is expected of Kaitaki students for at least 15 minutes. 

A STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering and Math) choice board has been created on Seesaw and Google Classroom for students to complete. 

See the websites below for extended home learning activities


A spare change of clothing/footwear will be useful during training.
