As a result of current restrictions, our prizegivings will have a different look. The Year 6 cups and new KTS Learner badges and the Year 8 cups will be presented as part of their respective graduation celebrations.  We will be presenting KTS Learner badges (what were our Cornerstone badges) for our Year 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7 students on Friday 10th December and Monday 13th December.    KTS Award Criteria 2021

Year 6 Moving on Up

Year 6 graduation, and now also prizegiving, will be held on Monday 13th December at 2:00pm. We invite all Year 6 students to attend at this time and will ensure safe social distancing.  We will share the event digitally. 

Year 8 Graduation 

The year 8 graduation on Tuesday 14th December at 6:00pm will still incorporate an opportunity for students to dress up and celebrate their years at Kohia.  There will be a simple dinner, prizegiving and then the graduation.  As this is an indoor event, parents are not able to attend. We plan to live stream the prizegiving element and then record the individual citation ceremonies; this footage will be sent to parents.  This is always such a special evening for students, we have done our best to retain what we can.
