They are looking for sports shoes, rugby/soccer boots, tops, dresses, skirts, bibs, balls. The donations do not have to be netball things – they can be any sport at all.

Part of the research involves a survey to look at the causal factors and sentiment around truancy from different aspects such as from Principals, ECE, Teachers, parents (any parent or caregiver responsible for ensuring a child’s attendance at school) and the students themselves.

The Kaharoa School 2019 ERO Review report is now available for parents to view on our Board of Trustees page (from the list of Policy Topics on the right-hand side).

Congratulations to our past Kaharoa School Board Chair, Don Hammond, who has been elected as Board Chair to the New Zealand Centre for Gifted Children (NZCGC).
