Kimihia Primary School

Covid 19 Level 1 from Tuesday 9 June 2020

Kia ora Whanau

We are looking forward to all students returning to school as of tomorrow, Tuesday 9 June!

As always Kimihia School will continue to keep your child/ children safe by providing a well managed environment.

Staggered breaks will continue until the end of a term 2. The information from Jacinda Ardern is to still observe social distancing as much as possible. Therefore, we would appreciate you dropping off and picking up your child/children from the school gate.

Thank you for your support.

To provide a caring, stable environment and academic excellence while preparing our students for life long learning

OUR VISION - To be a school where all students become life long learners

Kimihia School is situated on the east side of Huntly in a semi-rural setting. We are a strong community based school that began in 1897.

Kimihia, translated as "Go and Seek", is the school motto and our mission statement is "To provide a caring, stable environment and academic excellence while preparing students for life long learning."

All students at our school are encouraged, guided and supported to "Go and Seek" as we prepare them as 21st Century learners.
