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.
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.
(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 16th 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.
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.

Room Kowhai have been learning about bees and we learned to use bees wax to make some wraps that will help us use less plastic.

As of this year for all sports & school events out of school, the children will be allocated a school sports t-shirt to wear for that event. The t-shirts must only be worn for the event and not after hours.
See the attached case study about why it is so important for children to read for 20 minutes a night.
