Our Cornerstone Value for this term is kindness and already we have had great examples of what this means at Kaharoa School. At assembly to start of the term off, we acknowledged those children who had won Stepping Up Awards. These children were acknowledged as shining examples of children who show strong moral character and our Cornerstone Values, from respect to taking on responsibility to being kind and caring. We also recognised and thanked those children who with their parents had given up time in their holidays to feed the school calves. Thank you. [Read More...]
