The Sara Cohen Satellite Class
Concord Primary School hosts two Sara Cohen School Satellite classes. One is named Pikopiko and the other is still yet to be named. These two classes are for primary aged students. The second Sara Cohen satellite class is currently under construction. The expected date of completion is at the end of term two. The two classes are currently combined.
Students get the opportunity to integrate into some mainstream programmes and whole school activities eg. the Life Ed Bus, Singing Assembly, and when we have visiting entertainers here. Some Concord students also get the opportunity to integrate with Sara Cohen students in their classes and playground. The Sara Cohen students add a special dimension to Concord School.
Students receive nutritious milk through Fonterra Milk for Schools.
