Welcome to Kowhai Class!
The teacher of Kowhai Class is Miss Mandy Gillam
Kowhai is Te Ranga’s new entrant classroom. We aim to keep this class between 12-18 students. Miss Gillam integrates a playbased programme into her class as well as learning language through Phonics.
Before starting in Kowhai class, new students can enjoy a smooth transition through Te Ranga’s Kickstart Programme. Miss Gillam, and sometimes the whole Kowhai Class, visit new children at their ECE centre. New enrollees can make transition visits on Thursday’s in preparation to their start at school.
If you want to make enquiries about enrolment or the Kickstart programme you can email Helena at
