It’s been great to see that so many families in the community have made good use of our school pool. Since the pool is now closed for winter we would like to ask all those who are still holding access tags to return these to the school office. They will be available again next summer.
NZSTA would like to encourage parent and whanau participation on school boards in order to help shape and support the education of their children. To that end, we will be rolling out the Korari Programme for anyone interested in finding out about standing for the school board elections and having a say in the education of their children. We have attached the following resources and feel free to share these widely in your community. These are also available on our website.

This event is for Year 3 to Year 6 students – there are two divisions: Year 3 & 4 and Year 5 & 6. Schools who wish to register must enter one team in each division (limited to 1x yr 3/4 team and 1x yr 5/6 team per school). Each team is limited to a maximum of 10 players which must consist of 5 boys and 5 girls with only 7 players on the field at any given time (at least 3 girls). All players must complete a 2019 NZ Rippa Rugby form once place in the team is confirmed. Spaces will fill quickly so register ASAP to avoid disappointment. Each school will also be given an adopted country to play under and these will be notified prior to the event.
Vision and hearing are absolutely paramount to learning and having our children screened free of charge is a fantastic opportunity which is provided by the Empowered Learning Trust.

Most Mondays we will have fresh vegetables for sale in our vegetable stand. These are available for parents to purchase by donation. Your support will be greatly appreciated by the children who are assisting with the gardens. Money raised will go back to our Garden to Table initiative. A win/win situation.

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.
