There will be a 45 minute break for lunch at 12.00pm and the opening of the Beach Volleyball Court/BBQ Shelter (see below).

Races will recommence at 1:15 pm with the 8 year old girls.

Please make sure children bring a drink bottle, lunch and dry clothes to change into if necessary.

If the weather doesn’t permit the cross country event to go ahead, postponement day is Monday, 29 June or the next fine day.


Beach Volleyball Court/BBQ Shelter Opening

We will celebrate the completion of this project and launch it with the community. The official opening of the facility will be at 12.15pm where we celebrate and acknowledge our supporters.

We will be joined by Councillors Mercia Yates and Fisher Wang who will represent the Mayor. There will also be a live demonstration of a game of beach volleyball by a team from Western Heights High School

It will be followed by a light Korean BBQ for parents and guests provided by the Kaharoa School PTA. All members of the community are invited, please do bring a plate to share.


Kumara Sales

We still have some kumara left over that will be available for purchase for $2 per kilo, please bring a container or plastic bag!

(And if you very kindly lent us your chilli bin for the soup making, and it is still here at school, please don’t forget to come and pick it up).

We look forward to a great turn-out!
