To help ensure the safety of your children the local police department have been asked to monitor speeds past our local buses. A reminder if you are passing a stationary school bus you must slow down to 20km per hour.
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.
Thoroughly enjoyed watching two of our Kaharoa School Saturday Sport teams competing this weekend. Great to see the children looking so good in their Kaharoa School uniforms, competing strongly, applying skills and teamwork learnt from their coaches. Involvement in sport is such a good way to learn about ourselves, about working with others and how to respond appropriately when winning or losing.
Well done to all the Kaharoa kids who took part in the World Vision 40hr famine. We raised a grand total of $1730.70 for the children in South Sudan. Great effort and thanks!
A big thanks to everyone for helping, supporting at our two bbq’s at the Cross country events this term. We raised $3075 which will go towards paying for a teacher aide.
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.
There were some fabulous wigs and super heros at our Wig Wednesday parade last week. Thank you for all the generous donations. We raised $107.20 which will be going to the Child Cancer Society.
The children in Room Kauri arrived at school yesterday morning to find a new door magically appear in their classroom. The fairy door has been the talking point of all the children today and they are very excited. They wrote special letters to the fairies who have made their home in Room Kauri. Today they arrived to letters from the fairies to the children.
We as a school have been advised by Ministry of Primary Industries, VetPlus and Federated Farmers not to include calves in our Lamb Calf Chicken & Kid day this year. Due to MBovis we will be heading this advice and calves will not be part of this day for this year. See below for the email we received this morning.
On behalf of the PTA & school we would like to thank all our families that supported this event by sending a small gift to school so we could put towards our Mother’s Day stall last week.
