Most Mondays we will have fresh vegetables for sale in our vegetable stand. These are available for parents to purchase by donation. Your support will be greatly appreciated by the children who are assisting with the gardens. Money raised will go back to our Garden to Table initiative. A win/win situation.
NZSTA would like to encourage parent and whanau participation on school boards in order to help shape and support the education of their children. To that end, we will be rolling out the Korari Programme for anyone interested in finding out about standing for the school board elections and having a say in the education of their children. We have attached the following resources and feel free to share these widely in your community. These are also available on our website.

A huge thanks from the PTA to all the parents and people of community who helped at our firewood fundraiser last weekend. There were parents splitting and stacking trailer loads of wood.

Well done to the children for participating in a winter sport for Term 2 & 3. The Winter Sports Prizegiving was held at our Friday assembly on the last day of last term. Again a big thanks to the parents and caregivers who volunteered their time to coach and manage these teams. We really appreciate it and the children certainly do.
Congratulations to Hamish Malcolm who got his golf handicap over the holidays. Hamish will go down in Kaharoa School history (111 years) as the first current pupil to have achieved this. No one will be able to take this achievement away from him. We look forward to following Hamish’s progress as he works to improve his handicap. The new challenge for future Kaharoa golfers will be achieving the status of youngest pupil to get a handicap. To do this they will need to be younger than 13 years 5 months.
The children had a great time at our first Kaharoa School Agrikids afternoon. We expect with a bit of tweaking this will become a regular part of our Lamb, Calf, Kid and Chicken Day event. A huge thank you to Jacqui English for organising the event on behalf of the PTA. Thank you also to Alistair Coatsworth, Brendon Conwell, Claire Austin, Tony Thaugland, Andy Gifford and Phil Rivers. Mr Thaugland also wanted me to thank his helpers – Elspeth, Casey and Olivia.
