Welcome to Matakohe School

We have completed our lockdown exercise and all students, staff and persons on-site are safely accounted for.  Everyone did extremely well and responded to instructions.  A notice will be going out to parents/caregivers tonight to provide some more information about our emergency lockdown procedures.

I would like to personally thank you for your support while we conduct these practices. 

Kind regards – Rosemary Lonsdale, Principal
