Mya from Room Kowhai popped into town with mum yesterday to hopefully catch a glimpse of Harry & Meghan. She was lucky enough to talk with the duchess which was extremely exciting and has made her year.
On Tuesday our learners at Kaharoa School were very fortunate to have a morning of learning, exposure and fun into the world of science.
A huge thanks from the PTA to all the parents and people of community who helped at our firewood fundraiser last weekend. There were parents splitting and stacking trailer loads of wood. A huge thanks to John Lee and Celia Grant for donating a paddock of gums to the Kaharoa School PTA and to John Lee for cutting down and ringing the logs.

Well done to the children for participating in a winter sport for Term 2 & 3. The Winter Sports Prizegiving was held at our Friday assembly on the last day of last term. Again a big thanks to the parents and caregivers who volunteered their time to coach and manage these teams. We really appreciate it and the children certainly do.
Congratulations to Hamish Malcolm who got his golf handicap over the holidays. Hamish will go down in Kaharoa School history (111 years) as the first current pupil to have achieved this. No one will be able to take this achievement away from him. We look forward to following Hamish’s progress as he works to improve his handicap. The new challenge for future Kaharoa golfers will be achieving the status of youngest pupil to get a handicap. To do this they will need to be younger than 13 years 5 months.
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.
It was an exciting time on the last day of term when the whole school watched anxiously as Hugo Gaddum, Mr Moyle, Mrs Powley & Mr Shoebridge shaved their hair off to raise money for the Cancer Society. We have currently raised $4444.00 so come on let’s make the big $5000.00. You can Click here to go to the donate page now. If you cannot donate online, you can send the money in a named envelope to the school office and we will make sure it gets donated to the Cancer Society. We will close the page off next Friday 26th October and will let you know how much we raised. Again thanks so much to everyone for their support. Dig deep for such a great charity.
A most successful day was held on Tuesday with the weather playing its part. A large number of our children enjoyed having the opportunity to show their animals and share their husbandry knowledge.
