International Safe School accreditation

Kaiapoi North School is now accredited as an International Safe School. We are the 50th school internationally to earn this accreditation. On Wednesday 30th March we held a special assembly to celebrate together. Mrs Carolyn Coggan came from Auckland to present us with the award. Mr David Ayers, mayor of Waimakariri spoke at the assembly as did Mr Graeme Barber, principal of Woodend School who are the only other South Island School to receive the same award. We are very proud of the work we do together to strive for an environment where people feel safe emotionally and physically. Our KNS Values and Beliefs are key to our positive school culture. Let us continue to work hard to keep our school culture both positive and safe.
