Our Kura

Welcome to our Kaikohe West School website.

Located in the heart of Northland we honour the Treaty of Waitangi and practice Te Reo and tikanga o Ngā Puhi and local hapu.

Kaikohe is a special place with many historic landmarks, Marae and stories that we cherish in our pride for Kaikohe.


As a school in partnership with our parents and community we want every student to achieve all the attributes identified in our graduate profile.



To do this our four key success drivers are:

One school   Modern pedagogy   Whanau participation   Citizenship


Each of our staff and student members are allocated a HOUSE for the duration of their time at Kaikohe West School. Each individual represents their HOUSE throughout the year, collecting HOUSE points, competing in HOUSE events or dressing up in their HOUSE colours. Parents/caregivers are welcome to get involved and contribute points to help your HOUSE win the title at the end of each week, term and ultimately at the end of the year.
