A team of Year 5/6 and Year 7/8 children had a great time at Top School which was held at Rotorua Intermediate School last Thursday afternoon. The Year 5/6 team won their competition which was really exciting. Certificates for the Year 5/6 team will be handed out this Friday morning at assembly.
See the attached case study about why it is so important for children to read for 20 minutes a night.

An IMPORTANT request for help and support from ALL Kaharoa School parents. As some of you may already be aware we have a pupil at school who quietly and strongly copes with Systemic chronic juvenile arthritis. This young man gets fully involved in our school life despite often being in pain, while at the same time showing great resilience and character. He is currently receiving treatment and this is where we need your help.
Entries are still open for the Junior Tough Guy and Gal Challenge being held on Wednesday 15th August at Lakes Ranch. I will be entering the children as a group for the school or you can also enter online by clicking here. Children must be Year 3 and up. Every child this year will receive a finishers medal once they have completed the challenge.

This takes place on each alternate Monday afternoon and is taken by an interdenominational group, who have been approved by your school Board of Trustees. This group runs a fun and interactive programme called ‘Go Bananas’

In order to align with Ngongotaha School enrolment boundaries Kaharoa School Board of Trustees has resolved to expand its enrolment zone. Under the scheme, students will be enrolled if they live within the home zone described below. The guidelines for development and operating of enrolment schemes are issued under section 11G (3) of the Education Act 1989 for the purpose of describing the basis on which the Secretary’s powers in relation to enrolment schemes will be exercised.
Our production this year was a huge success and well done to the teachers and the children. A big thanks to the PTA for organising a food stall on the final night of the show and the parents who stayed behind at the end to help pack down the staging.
Just a reminder that in Term 1 & 4, it is compulsory for all children to wear the Kaharoa School sun hat. These hats can be purchased from the school office at a price of $20. If you would like to buy a hat either pop into the office or email Heidi and she will fit a hat for your child.
