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.
Just a reminder that in Term 1 & 4, it is compulsory for all children to wear the Kaharoa School sun hat. These hats can be purchased from the school office at a price of $20. If you would like to buy a hat either pop into the office or email Heidi and she will fit a hat for your child and you can pay by cash or direct credit into the school bank account #12 3155 0189083 00.
