It has been fabulous to see parents making the time to attend our parent teacher interviews. Teachers greatly appreciate your support, coming out on cold winter evenings to discuss your child’s learning and progress. I am sure your children appreciate you taking the time to find out about their learning and I hope they have thanked you. [Read More...]

Congratulations to the following ex Kaharoa students for their success.
Room Miro have now finished Theme 2 for Roots of Empathy about “Crying.” We learnt that crying babies are not bad babies but babies with a problem who need our help, and that although babies cry a lot, and it’s easy for a parent or caregiver to feel frustrated or upset, it is never ok to shake a baby.
Dear Parents, You are warmly invited to come along to a Science Expo at our school when your child will share their learning in Science.

On Friday of last week and/or Monday morning the backs of some seats were damaged on the bus. This bus is only used for our Jackson/Central and Hamurana Bus runs. To their credit, a number of children owned up to touching the backs of the seats, as inquisitive children do. One child mentioned their bag catching on the seat and ripping it. We have discussed the importance of telling the driver or teacher if something like this happens. No one owned up to deliberately ripping or damaging the seats and it is difficult to ascertain what state the seats were originally in.
A huge thank to Rotorua Lakes Council for donating Hi-vis vests with SLOW DOWN FOR KIDS written on the back.
On behalf of the PTA & school we would like to thank all the families that supported this event by sending a small gift to school so we could put towards our Mother’s Day stall last week. We had the Juniors stall on Wednesday at lunchtime and the Seniors on Thursday. The weather was totally different for both days with one stall outside and the other in the library.
Thanks so much to Byron Horner, Wiremu Ruru, Warrick Rose & Anna Weaver for coaching the touch teams in Term 1 and Donna Webster, Jeanette Watkins & Mel Short for managing them.
Well done to the 48 Kaharoa kids who completed the Rotorua Mini Marathon on Friday 5th May. It was a huge success with 2170 children entering this year.
