Kowhai Intermediate School
26 Onslow Road
In the event of a power or internet outage our phone system will not work. In that situation we will use our fax line (09) 846-7918 as our backup phone line.
In the event of a serious incident or emergency we will post information on the website and our phone system when we are able to. Please do not phone or come to the school - we will make contact with all parents via text & email when practical to keep you updated with the situation.
Report an Absence
If your child is absent or late for any reason you must phone the school on 846 7534, or email email@example.com. If you call before school hours please leave a voice mail message. The School Office will notify you by text message if your child is absent without a reason.
On occasion the school may use the group email function within our eTAP software to contact parents. This email will come from an '@etap.co.nz' address - it is a legitimate communication.
Visitors to the School
We ask that all visitors to the school, including whanau and family members, report to the school office to sign in.
