Message from our Principal


Tēnā tātou katoa

First of all, I would like to commend our community for the recent increased percentage in attendance. It’s wonderful to see our students making the most of their educational opportunities. As a community, we need to work together to support the full attendance of our students. Attendance matters! I am always proud to recognize students with 90 - 100% attendance each term. In Term 1, we had 73 students who had 100% attendance and  341 whose attendance was between 90 - 99%. Remember, 90% attendance is equivalent to one day off every fortnight.

We are making changes to our sign-in and sign-out process to ensure the safety and accountability of our students. All leave and appointments during the school day must be notified by whānau to the school (that can be to the Form Teacher, Teacher, or Office) before leaving school. All students in Years 7 - 11 must report to the office and connect with the office staff before leaving school. Year 12 and 13 students can sign out using the iPad in the Student Office. As a reminder, here are our contact details:

It continues to amaze me what our students achieve during their time at college and how, as a community, we should be proud of them. Our students excel in a wide range of activities, showcasing their talents and hard work. Many of these are visible in this newsletter. Recently, we have had impressive participation in events such as Cross Country, the NCEA Senior Music Evening, Pasifika Homework Club, and the Epro 8 season. I know many students contribute positively to our community through sports and service and that many of them are not directly coordinated by the college. We thank you for your positive involvement in your community. 

I would like to wish all the best to those students taking part in winter sports. Remember to always do your best, play fair, and make sure that you are having fun. As parents and whānau, please make sure you take the time to go and support your children. Even if they say they’re not bothered if you come and watch, I can assure you that when you turn up for a game, they will notice and it will be appreciated.

For our Year 10 students and some Years 11 and 12, the last week has been a busy and perhaps stressful time with the common assessment exams for literacy and numeracy. All the staff have been impressed with how you have approached these tests, with the preparation you have made and how seriously you have taken them. Our Academic Captains ran tutoring leading up to these assessments and will be doing so again before the next round.

As a vibrant community, we have several events coming up, and we would love for you to get involved. On Saturday 15 June, we are hosting the Senior Student Ball at the Memorial Hall. Parents, whānau, and the community are welcome to come along and watch our students as they enter the Memorial Hall on the red carpet - last year, this was quite the thing to see! This is then closely followed by the Matariki Pō Tuku Taonga Celebration on Thursday 20 June. Our Year 7 and 8 Faculty are holding a car boot sale to fundraise for camp and we will also be hosting a Pink Ribbon Fundraiser event in August. Katikati College is also very proud to be hosting Pasifika in the Bay in November. This is a huge honour for the College and we are very excited and humbled to have been asked.

The transition of starting school at 8.30 am on Thursday mornings has been seamless; your support has been appreciated. I would also like to thank Pastor Patrick Rounds and his team for the pancakes they provide students on Thursday mornings at St. Peter’s Anglican Church. It is certainly a positive community service for our students. Just a reminder that there is also Breakfast Club at the College, Tuesday and Wednesday before school, in the old food technology room. All students are welcome.

Thank you to everyone who has been able to pay their school donation. Your contributions help in providing quality resources and opportunities for our students. These donations directly support a wide range of programs and activities that enrich our students' educational experiences. With your help, we can fund extracurricular activities, upgrade classroom technology, and provide additional learning materials that enhance the curriculum. 

We deeply appreciate your commitment to our school community. By investing in our students' education, you are helping to build a brighter future for all. Thank you for your ongoing support and generosity.
