On Friday 8 November 2019, Kaharoa School held its Scientist For A Day annual event.
For all you busy parents who need a hand with looking after your children, I can be of great assistance, so don’t hesitate to give me a call. My name is Silvie, I am a 19 year old student and currently back home from university over the summer holidays. I am responsible, cheerful, well organised and I love working with children. I hold a full drivers licence and am able to work late. I have great experience in babysitting, having looked after my cousins and other children on many occasions. If you would like to get in touch, please call or text me on 027 960 6193 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Reminder: We have a policy of no sweets or chocolates at school - this is also in line with our healthy eating guidelines and only to be had as occasional treats. Although Christmas candy canes and lollies are around at this time of the year they are not to be eaten at school. However we will allow these special treats to be eaten during the last week of term.
Every Thursday, Kapai Kai lunches that have been ordered by students or staff, are delivered to our school. These meals are super nutritious and delicious: they only use high-quality ingredients like free-range eggs, wholemeal pasta and no refined sugars, or processed meats. Therefore they fit perfectly with our Health Promoting Schools Policy. Orders need to be placed by Wednesday, cash payment only. Please find attached the latest menu if you like to give it a go!

Thank you to the Ngati Whakaue Endowment Grant for the grant of $13,000 to ‘boost our oral literacy in reading and writing’. This grant enables us to purchase the Quick60 Alphabet books and the Factual texts Set 2 (we bought Set 1 this year), storage for these sets and employ a teacher aide to run these programmes next year. We are also able to purchase sets of Lego for our Bricks Club. We are beyond grateful for this grant and the benefits it will bring for our tamariki.
Congratulations to Amy Brunt, Gemma Brunt and Sam Gifford…

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!
