Thank you very much to Judy Thompson from VIP Realty for running an Easter colouring-in competition for our junior classes. The children did a wonderful job getting their special pictures ready for Judy, who came in on Tuesday to judge the final results and award some very delicious and fluffy prizes! Judy is also offering her support by donating $500 to our school upon any referral that VIP Realty receives from our community. So please do keep her in mind, if you are intending to sell a property and mention Kaharoa!

Room Rata would like to thank our FABULOUS camp parents who came to Lakes Ranch with us - Sam Paterson, Kylie Johnston, Tom Davies, Blair Hartley, Gary Back and Anna Weaver.
Last Wednesday the little eco-warriors in Room Kowhai went bush. We drove down to the Kokako Bush block and meandered down to the Onaia Stream where we had our morning tea. We were on the lookout for kokako but unfortunately we didn’t see any. However we did see robins, fantails, cool fungi, interesting insects and some amazing trees. Thanks to our wonderful parent helpers who assisted with transport and supervision. Thanks to Tim Day, Annadel Delacruz, Jaimie Schwarz, Magdalene Paul, Ruth Hobart, Lilly-Rose Featherstone, Andrea Batchelor and Anna Burton. Thanks to the generosity of the children we were able to donate $50 to the Kaharoa Kokako Trust.
Last year, we implemented a parent app called “@school”, that provided us with an additional channel of effective and timely communication with our families in an easy-to-access app on your phone. This app is directly linked to our student management system and will initially enable you to securely access personal information about your child (and advise us of any changes), receive school notices, inform us about absences, access information about your school account and access our website via a direct link.
