Children can proudly look back on their achievements and quality of character in what has been a busy and eventful Term 3 for them. They have taken on many different challenges, from learning, sport events, widening horizons through electives to creative through our end of term production and lunchtime art. We look forward to seeing what they have managed to achieve in the production. We have entrusted the senior children in particular to take on a lot of the challenges themselves, with teacher support, in a very short timeframe. It has been fantastic to see so many children being Can Do Kids. [Read More...]

Lamb Calf Chicken & Kid day is an annual event at Kaharoa School. It is on Tuesday 17th October (1st Tuesday in Term 4). The aim of this event is for the children to care for and raise a lamb, kid, calf or chicken and enter it in this event. This is a fun and exciting day that is enjoyed by the children and also teaches them about looking after their pet.
A big thanks to the following people: Chris & Sarah Jans for donating a shed to the school.

Kaharoa School was invited to take a group of children to a tree planting day down at the Waiteti Marae. They were joined by other local schools. After the planting they enjoyed a shared lunch before coming back to school. Well done to our fellow gardeners - Fiona, Gemma, Emma E.B, Campbell, Sam G, Jamie, Chloe H, Rebecca J & Alana.
Last week our children at Kaharoa School were very fortunate to experience the Lab-in-a-Box from Victoria University.

The programme is funded by Lotteries Funds and MBIE and comes with no related cost for our school.
