Things to remember for the first day of class on Monday 12 February

For everyone, especially newcomers / trials: please read our Class Guidelines .

School Kids classes: Please bring a clearly named manilla folder (foolscap size is preferable), with a metal fastener (you can bring the folder to class with the fastener already inserted). We have a lot of hand outs for the writing section of the class during the term. Note that folders will remain with the teachers during term time.

You can buy these from

If parents would prefer that NHCC buy these two items for their child, we’ll have an order sheet on Monday 12th February to write your name down. Please bring $2 cash on the day if you wish to order. Payment must be made on the day.

Those attending a trial: Please confirm via tryitout@nihaocc.org.nz with us within 24 hours of completing your class whether you wish to sign up for the term and/or year, as we are short on class spaces this term and need to finalise student numbers quickly.

Chinese New Year Festival Saturday 17 February, venue info & sign up sheets

We’ll be handing out info about the next Saturday 17 February Chinese New Year event and will be asking families to sign up to help with the following please:

  • Children to make their own dog mask for wearing in the parade (make from scratch, print one out, etc ) and dress in either yellow, orange or red. Spot prizes for masks!
  • Four adults to assist as marshals for our section of the Chinese New Year Parade. It is a safety role to basically ensure that the participants/children do not go off course, and that the public do not try getting into the parade or do anything silly that would endanger themselves or the parade participants. The parade moves at good speed and is a mixture of dancers, floats and walking groups.
