Special thank you to the following PTA members who have dedicated a lot time for your children who have stood down this year
Thank you also to
Yet another special group of Year 8 children are going off to High School, and we are losing some other exceptional children to other schools for various reasons. To you all remember to
This year 25 of our Year 8 children were tested by the National Monitoring Study of Student Achievement focusing on Year 8 English. The children were tested on Reading, Writing, Listening and Viewing, Presenting and Speaking. They were part of 100 schools and 2025 Year 8 students. I’m delighted to say all our children were above the national average in all areas and in many cases substantially. These results will be on our website for parents to celebrate with your child. See attached.
A few weeks ago reviewers from the Education Review Office visited Kaharoa School. It gave me a lot of pleasure to ‘show off’ your children and the strong learning dispositions the children have. It was also a chance to highlight our wonderful teachers and the work they do. The reviewers were impressed not only with the quality of the work all our teachers are doing across the school but also with the work of our support staff, teacher aides, administration staff and caretaker.
What gives me the most joy is seeing our Year 8 children leave and overtime achieve and become positive contributors to our society. Once again results I have seen and heard about show Kaharoa School past pupils have achieved highly at the various High Schools throughout Rotorua and at schools and universities outside of Rotorua. We also have those who have gone onto successful lives in the workplace and community. Fisher is a great example of this. All of these young people ‘fill my bucket’ and I have no doubt this group of Year 8 children will do the same.
Next year a few of the many things we can look forward to are
Children start next year on 3 February and we are starting the year with an opening roll of around 185 children. We have a TOD on Friday 7 February where teachers will be visiting local marae and areas of significance.
I wish you all a safe and festive New Year and Christmas.
