On Monday 27th August all our tongxuemen and laoshi were involved in 6 different workshops about ‘Discover China’. This morning was possible from generous funding from Asia: NZ Foundation and facilitated by Confucius Classroom Western Heights High School.
Yesterday we hosted the Chess Power Inter-school tournament at our school with 95 children attending from Rotorua Primary, St Michaels, Lynmore, Waikite Valley & Western Heights High School.
Well done to our Year 7&8 sevens team (Ty Jackson, Hugo Gaddum, Wiremu Priest, Max Phillips, Olly Weaver, Josh Sutton, Sam Short, Tanner Dean & Hunter Weaver) who represented Kaharoa School at the Westbrook Rugby Fields last week. The weather was perfect and the children gave it their all. Great experience for them.
Forty four of our Kaharoa Commandos participated in the Junior Tough Guy Gal Challenge a Lakes Ranch last Wednesday morning. The weather was amazing and it was a great day enjoyed by all. Approximately 2000 children in total took part in this challenge from around the area and it now covers two days.

To help ensure the safety of your children the local police department have been asked to monitor speeds past our local buses. A reminder if you are passing a stationary school bus you must slow down to 20km per hour.
Great to see the Year 8 hockey team holding their own against a very strong JPC Black team going down 4-0. Looking the better team in the second half with many promising attacks while keeping JPC scoreless. On Saturday I enjoyed seeing the Kaharoa Kererus combining well on the netball court for a win and the hockey Fantails and Kiwis playing with determination and enthusiasm. Thank you to the respective coaches, referees and helpers who are giving up your time so that the children can enjoy participating for Kaharoa.
Last term Mrs Powley held a knitting group at lunchtimes. The girls knitted squares which was made into a beautiful blanket and was lovingly given to Gaye France who is a nurse in the Special Care Baby Unit at Rotorua Hospital. Well done girls.
Thoroughly enjoyed watching two of our Kaharoa School Saturday Sport teams competing this weekend. Great to see the children looking so good in their Kaharoa School uniforms, competing strongly, applying skills and teamwork learnt from their coaches. Involvement in sport is such a good way to learn about ourselves, about working with others and how to respond appropriately when winning or losing.
Well done to all the Kaharoa kids who took part in the World Vision 40hr famine. We raised a grand total of $1730.70 for the children in South Sudan. Great effort and thanks!
A big thanks to everyone for helping, supporting at our two bbq’s at the Cross country events this term. We raised $3075 which will go towards paying for a teacher aide.
