A big congratulations to 10 year old Hannah Forsman who received “Rider of the Year 2017”, presented by the Rotorua District Riding for the Disabled Academy.
Roots of Empathy (ROE) starts 29 March in Ms Lincoln’s classroom, Room Miro. Our ROE family this year is Nicole Way, John Butterworth and our new teacher, baby George.
At ASB we recognise the importance of teaching financial literacy in New Zealand schools and want to create good savings behaviours at a young age.
Thank you to the children and parents of Room Rimu. We had a wonderful camp at Tui Ridge two weeks ago and it was thanks to the behaviour and enthusiasm of all involved.

It has been noted that the Jackson Road Bus has been parking on the yellow lines past the Jackson Road bus pull in area. Ritchies Bus company have been notified and the council are looking into the need for clearly marking the pull in area as a Bus Stop. In the meantime, to ensure the children's safety, can parents and family members ensure the bus pull in area is clear of parked cars so that the bus can pull in. It is also important parents get out of their cars to meet the children as they get off the bus Thank you.
The Health promoting schools team raised money from selling goodies at our Homework Challenge Market Day. With the money raised they purchased some sports balls for the sports shed and native trees for the gardens. Well done team!
The Education Review Office visited our school this year for our 3 yearly review, attached is the final report for you to read at your leisure.
Last term the Nga Pumanawa e Waru team visited our school and some of the Kaharoa students took part in the filming of their NPeW Music Video “Rotorua - What a Great Place to Learn”. Click here to view the video. Visit the Nga Pumanawa e Waru website for more informtion about their journey and focus for education within Rotorua http://www.npew.org
As part of the promotion of the relocation of the Kokako from the Kaharoa Trust to the Otanewainuku Reserve, The Kaharoa Kokako Trust asked if the Kaharoa children would like to be involved in this promotion.
Just a reminder that all parents must meet the children at the bus door. Children have been told not to cross the road on their own when the bus is still there or once it has gone. Remember that children's safety comes first.
The office will be posting the hockey, basketball & netball sports draws on the website each week. The school website address is www.kaharoa.school.nz . Please keep checking this website as it will be updated with any news that is happening at the school and in the community.
Just a reminder that if your child is not going on the bus in the afternoon, it is really important that you sign them as absent on the roll. This avoids the problem of not being able to find the child and the buses not running to schedule. If your child is travelling to another residence for the day, then the parent needs to contact the office to advise the school that their child needs a temporary bus pass for that particular day. Thank you.
Could all parents remember to sign your child off the bus if you pick them up from school so when the bus monitors do the roll call, they know that the children are absent. If your child is late or leaves early, please remember to sign in or out at the school office.
Could all parents who pick up their children from school please park in the two carparks only. Please do not park at the front of the school as this is for the buses to park.
