Not Returning or Returning Late in 2023
Thank you to those parents who have already advised the school that their child will not be returning to East Waikiki PS in 2023.  If you have not already done so please advise at the following address

This will ensure that the school has accurate student numbers to plan for the classes in 2023.

If your child will be having an extended holiday and not commencing on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 parents are also asked to advise the school –

Yanga (thanks), enjoy the holidays and boordawan (I’ll see you soon),
