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 part of Keep NZ Beautiful week our junior children took part in our Emu Walk and picked up rubbish along Kaharoa and Kapukapu Roads. Well done to our Kaharoa kids and teachers and big thanks to the parents that helped.
Congratulations to the Year 4-7 children who sold their wares at the Market Day last week as part of their Homework Challenge. There were very creative & scrummy items for sale.
On Monday 27th August all our tongxuemen and laoshi were involved in 6 different workshops about ‘Discover China’. This morning was possible from generous funding from Asia: NZ Foundation and facilitated by Confucius Classroom Western Heights High School.
Forty four of our Kaharoa Commandos participated in the Junior Tough Guy Gal Challenge a Lakes Ranch last Wednesday morning. The weather was amazing and it was a great day enjoyed by all. Approximately 2000 children in total took part in this challenge from around the area and it now covers two days.
Gōng xǐ nǐmen! Meg, Ana, Finley, Jessica and Lucy - Yr 5 & 6; Amber, Sulis, Mila, Lucy and Katrina - Year 7; Aimee, Oliver, Phillipa, Joshua and Charlotte - Yr 8.
Here are some photos of the Kaharoa School Stoat/Rat traps in action. The 10 (double) DOC200 traps that the school purchased with money the House Captains raised a couple of years ago, are part of a line of 58 traps in the Kaharoa Forest. These traps are checked by us and Sue & Peter Williams (KKT volunteers) every 2 weeks. This line of traps are in addition to other traps lines that are checked by other KKT volunteers.
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.
