Transition from Early Childhood Centres to St James' Whakaruru Hau, our Sheltering Place, begins with our Nga Kakano Transition to School Programme.

“Nga Kakano” Transition to School Programme

Give your child a ‘Nga Kakano’ transition to St James’ Catholic School.  This programme has been designed so that you and your child will be introduced to school routines and procedures and to be involved in numeracy and literacy activities.

Where? St James’ School Learning Space 9.

When? Thursday mornings 8.50 am - 10.50am

Teacher? Tracey Gunn will run this programme. Other staff will be involved with parent information sessions.

Adult involvement? All children must be accompanied by an adult (preferably a parent).

Other pre-schoolers? We would prefer other pre-schoolers did not attend as it can be distracting for everyone.

Attendance? We feel that maximum benefits will be gained by regular attendance over five weeks although attendance is not compulsory.  

Is there a cost? No.

What happens next? Once you have registered for “Nga Kakano” please just join us on your first day at 8.50am in Learning Space 9. For safety purposes, please sign in when you arrive at the LS9. You do not need to sign in at the School Office.

We look forward to meeting you and your child. We will all be happy to help you.

Teresa Edwards (Principal), Michelle Pothan (Te Pihinga Team Leader), Tracey Gunn (New Entrant Teacher).
