Great to see the Year 8 hockey team holding their own against a very strong JPC Black team going down 4-0. Looking the better team in the second half with many promising attacks while keeping JPC scoreless. On Saturday I enjoyed seeing the Kaharoa Kererus combining well on the netball court for a win and the hockey Fantails and Kiwis playing with determination and enthusiasm. Thank you to the respective coaches, referees and helpers who are giving up your time so that the children can enjoy participating for Kaharoa.
Last term Mrs Powley held a knitting group at lunchtimes. The girls knitted squares which was made into a beautiful blanket and was lovingly given to Gaye France who is a nurse in the Special Care Baby Unit at Rotorua Hospital. Well done girls.
