Well done to the children for participating in a winter sport for Term 2 & 3. The Winter Sports Prizegiving was held during our Friday morning Assembly on 25 October. Again a big thanks to the parents and caregivers who volunteered their time to coach and manage these teams - it is very much appreciated by all!
Children in sport and the challenges that come with it - please watch this very good clip which we found has some excellent messages!
Thank you very much to Guy and Caroline Hartley for the donation of Dylan Hartley’s U19 2004 English Jersey, put up for auction to raise money for the PTA. Dylan is a past pupil of Kaharoa School.

Well done to all the children who took part in this years Lamb, Chicken and Kid Day. Here are the results from the School competition with some pictures of our trophy winners and from Group Day.
With Christmas and the new school year just around the corner, this could be an ideal opportunity for parents to consider purchasing a Chromebook if your child is moving into the middle/senior area of our school. Teachers have noted how much BYOD has enabled the learning for those who have their own devices.

I was immensely proud of our choir children yesterday at the Big Sing Competition at Southwell School in Hamilton. The children competed against 18 other choirs winning a Silver Award and were awarded the Best Impact Award. An outstanding result for a choir who have only been practising for a term.
