Here are some photos of the Kaharoa School Stoat/Rat traps in action. The 10 (double) DOC200 traps that the school purchased with money the House Captains raised a couple of years ago, are part of a line of 58 traps in the Kaharoa Forest. These traps are checked by us and Sue & Peter Williams (KKT volunteers) every 2 weeks. This line of traps are in addition to other traps lines that are checked by other KKT volunteers.
There were some fabulous wigs and super heros at our Wig Wednesday parade last week. Thank you for all the generous donations. We raised $107.20 which will be going to the Child Cancer Society.
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.

On behalf of the PTA & school we would like to thank all our families that supported this event by sending a small gift to school so we could put towards our Mother’s Day stall last week.
