Congratulations to our 2019 Tennis Cup winners Emily Davies and Kobe Stranks-Rose. Runners up were Olivia Downs and Roen Siemonek.
Last week Room Kowhai had their end of year sleepover at school. We would like to thank all our parents who helped with the baking and fruit.
It is wonderful to hear about our past pupils achieving as they go on in their schooling, so we wish to extend our CONGRATULATIONS to our past-pupils who have received awards at the various High Schools that we have heard from so far…

A special thank you from the staff and students of Kaharoa School to Grant & Crystal Plummer from Four Square, for their ongoing support of our school. We greatly appreciate the special support the school receives from Four Square and encourage parents to use their store at every possible convenience.
There is a new local business in town “I’ll do it”. They will do outside property maintenance work for you - exterior cleaning, windows, section and maintenance, gutters, roof, driveways, fences, paths, lawns, tree-trimming and hedges. Book in for an exterior clean before December 23rd, mention Kaharoa School, and they will donate 5% to the School!

Congratulations to the PTA for organising such a positive community-focused event in the Hamurana Flyer last weekend…
Reminder: We have a policy of no sweets or chocolates at school - this is also in line with our healthy eating guidelines and only to be had as occasional treats. Although Christmas candy canes and lollies are around at this time of the year they are not to be eaten at school. However we will allow these special treats to be eaten during the last week of term.
Congratulations to the following past pupils for winning these awards:
A huge congratulations to Leo English who has been breaking records in his swimming!

Thank you to the Ngati Whakaue Endowment Grant for the grant of $13,000 to ‘boost our oral literacy in reading and writing’. This grant enables us to purchase the Quick60 Alphabet books and the Factual texts Set 2 (we bought Set 1 this year), storage for these sets and employ a teacher aide to run these programmes next year. We are also able to purchase sets of Lego for our Bricks Club. We are beyond grateful for this grant and the benefits it will bring for our tamariki.
Congratulations to Amy Brunt, Gemma Brunt and Sam Gifford…
Congratulations to Damon Cowie for achieving Dux at WHHS. Damon has carried on a proud tradition for Kaharoa School with past pupils now having achieved 6 Dux Awards, 3 Proximae Accessit, 4 Head Girls, 2 Head Boys and 3 Deputy Head Boys since 2006. Congratulations also to Annelyse Cowie winning the Sportswoman of the Year Award at the WHHS co-curricular prize giving. An amazing achievement for someone who is only Year 11.
Well done to the children for participating in a winter sport for Term 2 & 3. The Winter Sports Prizegiving was held during our Friday morning Assembly on 25 October. Again a big thanks to the parents and caregivers who volunteered their time to coach and manage these teams - it is very much appreciated by all!
