Touch rugby has finished for this season and the school would like to say a huge thanks to the following parents for volunteering their spare time to come up to school for practices and coaching on the day of the game. Also to the managers for keeping the parents informed with correspondence on game draws etc: Sam Paterson, Jo Dixon, Grendon Beazley, Warwick Moyle, Jacqui English, Anna Weaver & Jeanette Watkins, Please make sure all the touch rugby t-shirts are returned to school before the end of the term.
Today we had the finals of the Kaharoa Tennis Cup. The girls and boy’s playoffs for 3rd and 4th was Aimee Evans vs Charlotte Lund and Willem Vosse vs Joshua Gifford. The girl’s finals for 1st and 2nd was Phillipa Barber vs Emily Davies and the boy’s final Olly Weaver vs Sam Short.
Well done to the following ex Kaharoa children for their success in their sports:
Room Matai were very excited to have a shared lunch and afternoon with their grandparents recently. We were thrilled with the turnout and we hope they enjoyed the lunch and the activities we prepared. Thanks to Mr Shoebridge, Mrs Noel and Mrs Back for the amazing help you gave on the day with setup, cooking, baking etc. Also a huge thanks to Mr Barnett our parent visitor for this week and telling the children all about life as a policeman.
We still have a few children who need to return their allocated Kaharoa t-shirts, track-suits and netball dresses to school asap please.
The children in Room Kauri would love to have some pre-loved baby dolls to care for and look after and a couple of prams so they can go for walks and go to sleep. If you are able to help, please send to Room 1.
Our annual West Cup Speech Competition was held in the Kokako Centre on Monday afternoon.
The PTA were very excited about hosting Michael (aka The Foodtruck Chef) Van de Elzen’s cooking demonstration tour for his new cookbook “Good From Scratch Children’s Cookbook” last week.

Last week 603 boxes from Rotorua were loaded into the OCC van and trailer and taken to the sorting centre at Henderson. From there we expect many of NZ’s boxes to go to Cambodia, Fiji, etc and the Philippines….this is a new area for us, a request for boxes came in recently.
The Roots of Empathy Annual Baby Celebration was held this week at Council Chambers. Katie Roy and Marcus Coatsworth from Room Mighty Miro attended as our student representatives along with Mr Moyle, Miss Lincoln, Mrs Noel and of course our very special RoE Family, Kirsten Laurence (Mum), Baby Lilah and Lucy Belle (Lilah’s sister).
