Nau mai, haere mai ki Te Kākano! Welcome to Te Kākano class at Frankley School!
If your 5 year old is just starting, then this is the place to find out what you can expect to happen as they transition to school life. Be sure to read through the A – Z Information Booklet, our Te Kākano Booklet, and learn more about our Whākatau (official welcome).

All new entrants start in Te Kākano – one of our innovative learning hubs. Te Kākano hub is made up of 3 interconnected rooms where children and teachers can move through the spaces forming small groups for guided learning.
