Welcome Back I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back children and parents to our new school year. A special welcome to the new families who have decided to enrol their children at our wonderful rural school.
Kaharoa Keas is our New Entrant Transition programme for children due to commence school.

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.
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.
As of this year for all sports & school events out of school, the children will be allocated a school sports t-shirt to wear for that event. The t-shirts must only be worn for the event and not after hours.
See the attached case study about why it is so important for children to read for 20 minutes a night.

An IMPORTANT request for help and support from ALL Kaharoa School parents. As some of you may already be aware we have a pupil at school who quietly and strongly copes with Systemic chronic juvenile arthritis. This young man gets fully involved in our school life despite often being in pain, while at the same time showing great resilience and character. He is currently receiving treatment and this is where we need your help.

At ASB we recognise the importance of teaching financial literacy in New Zealand schools and want to create good savings behaviours at a young age.
The Kokako Centre is located on the Kaharoa School grounds and is available for hire. If you have any fundraising events, meetings or leisure activities and you need a venue, please contact the school office 3323444 or email@example.com for more information.
