Huge thanks goes to all the children who have raised money for the PTA by completing the Kaharoa School cross country event.
We enjoyed a great ‘racing at our Kaharoa & Rural Schools Cross Country event on Tuesday 19 June. Thank you to the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) for providing the sausage sizzle & food stall and to all the wonderful Kaharoa School parents who supported on the day with the bbq, marshals, baking etc. Thank you to Heller’s for Schools, for donating 480 sausages for this event. Many thanks to the Walshe family for the use of their farm and their mule for the first aid and the Bridge family and the Zenker family for making their properties available. Thank you to Vance for the set up and pack down of the event.

As part of our communication topic Rooms Rimu visited the Rotorua Public Library MakerSpace last week.
On the 14th June, Room Rata went to the Makerspace at the public library. They had lots of fun making M-Bots, driving them around obstacles, and doing some coding on Scratch. It was a fantastic day where students were fully engaged in the whole process.
The Year 8 hockey team, siblings and other Kaharoa school children doing a sterling job of manning the Kaharoa School hockey BBQ all by themselves (with a bit of parent help behind the scenes). They had a rota system so that not all were manning the stall at the same time, although some stayed for the whole morning because they were so keen. They really seemed to enjoy the challenge.
The 3/4 & 5/6 rippa rugby teams had a great day on Friday. The weather was perfect and the kids were excited yet somewhat nervous with some in the team having never played before. Everyone had a go with many tries scored overall and many more ‘rips’ achieved. All came off the field muddy but happy, and feeling quite chuffed with themselves for trying so hard. Congratulations to the Year 5/6 team for being the Plate Winners.
Thank you to the parents that completed our sports photos survey which was sent out a couple of weeks ago. 81% of the families did not want photolife to come out to do the sports photos and would rather have our coaches, managers or parents take a team photo at the events.
The school pool closed at the end of term 1. We are still waiting on a number of pool tags to be returned to the school office. Thanks for your support.
The children in Room Kauri arrived at school yesterday morning to find a new door magically appear in their classroom. The fairy door has been the talking point of all the children today and they are very excited. They wrote special letters to the fairies who have made their home in Room Kauri. Today they arrived to letters from the fairies to the children.
An awesome effort by Hayley and Luke Hanna at the BMX Worlds in Azerbaijan last week.
We as a school have been advised by Ministry of Primary Industries, VetPlus and Federated Farmers not to include calves in our Lamb Calf Chicken & Kid day this year. Due to MBovis we will be heading this advice and calves will not be part of this day for this year. See below for the email we received this morning.
Congratulations to the following children who received the Stepping Up Awards for their class in Term 2.
(Please note we will NOT be holding the CALF section this year due to the Mycoplasma bovis). Lamb, Chicken (chick or ex-battery hen) & 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, 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. The Lambs, Chickens & Kids must be born between the 20th July and the 25th September.
Well done to Lucy Jones, Sulis Lambdin, Jamellia Scott, Tori Bryan, Cameron Watkins, Willem Vosse, Hugo Gaddum, Mila Alaeinia, Olly Weaver, Tanner Dean, Josh Gifford and Charlotte Lund who represented Kaharoa School at the Intermediate Bouldering Competition at Rocktopia in the Mount on Thursday 31 May. They competed against other schools from the BOP area. Our troops placed 2nd in the team event which is an awesome effort by all.
