We are very pleased to inform you that the installation of the retractable seating in our Kokako Center is nearly completed. It will be a wonderful asset to our school for a variety of events, such as weekly assemblies, end-of-year production or the upcoming PTA movie night on 28 June (5.30pm - more details to follow).
Your purchase of an Entertainment Membership contributes to our School. Help us achieve our goal by sharing this article with your friends and family.
We would like to say a big Thank You to Russell & Jackie Cowie and staff for looking after the wild cat (“Thunder”) that turned up at school last term. The care and treatment was provided free of charge and meant we now have a healthy and friendly school cat. Please support Central City Vets!

When dropping children off at school and picking up after school, in the interests of safety, maintaining safe vision for cars leaving the car park and traffic flow please do not park in the bus stop or in front of the school sign. Where possible please use the main carpark.
Most Mondays we will have fresh vegetables for sale in our vegetable stand. These are available for parents to purchase by donation. Your support will be greatly appreciated by the children who are assisting with the gardens. Money raised will go back to our Garden to Table initiative. A win/win situation.
Welcome Back I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back children and parents to our new school year. A special welcome to the new families who have decided to enrol their children at our wonderful rural school.

The children had a great time at our first Kaharoa School Agrikids afternoon. We expect with a bit of tweaking this will become a regular part of our Lamb, Calf, Kid and Chicken Day event. A huge thank you to Jacqui English for organising the event on behalf of the PTA. Thank you also to Alistair Coatsworth, Brendon Conwell, Claire Austin, Tony Thaugland, Andy Gifford and Phil Rivers. Mr Thaugland also wanted me to thank his helpers – Elspeth, Casey and Olivia.
At the end of last term the classes were busy creating their masterpieces for our Art Exhibition which was held on the 25,26 & 27 September.
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.
