Welcome to Cobham Intermediate
COBHAM INTERMEDIATE IS OPEN TODAY WEDNESDAY 5TH MARCH
THERE IS NO CLOSURE DUE TO RAIN.
School information for 2014
We have a thorough and robust process that involves a number of staff from across the school working together to place over 300 students. A part of coming to Cobham is about embracing change, making new friends, working with multiple teachers and building independence and resilience. At Cobham we expect students and families to acknowledge that this is a step away from primary school and accept this as an opportunity for something new and different. Class placement decisions are final.
All students are expected to have their complete set of stationery labelled with Name and Room number at school on their first full day, Monday 3 February 2014 if they are Year 8 or Tuesday 4 February 2014 if they are Year 7. We encourage Stationery to be purchased online with OfficeMax at myschool.co.nz. Alternatively it can be ordered by calling 0800 724 440. If ordering online visit https://www.myschool.co.nz to link through to your child’s pre-populated back to school stationery list. Once you have entered the site enter Cobham Intermediate and then find your child’s teacher and room number. This will ensure you get the correct stationery. If you choose to purchase it elsewhere please ensure you have the correct class stationery list – click to download the Stationery list 2014. Please scroll down to your class and print the appropriate stationery list. Paper copies are also available from the school office from 27/1/14, 9am-12pm. There will be an option on the stationery website to also pay some compulsory activity related fees and the school donation. This would be greatly appreciated and would mean that you have got another job ticked off and you won’t have to worry about it at the start of the school year in 2014!
First Day in 2014
School resumes for all students on Monday 3 February 2014. Year 7 students and their parents/caregivers will only have interviews with classroom teachers on this day. Students are to wear their full school uniform. Please report to the foyer for directions to your daughter/son’/s new classroom.
