In previous years this has been a great community day with everyone (including children) getting stuck in and doing a great job. We would very much appreciate your support.
We desperately need parents who can volunteer to help on the PTA bbq and food stall at our Lamb Chicken & Kid Day on Tuesday 16 October (1st Tues in Term 4). The time slots I need to fill are: 3x 11am - 12.30pm, 3x 12.30pm to 1.30pm and 3x 1.30pm to 2.30pm. If you can help at all, please email Heidi on email@example.com.
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.
There are still a number of families that have not returned the school pool tags from last season. Please return to the school office as soon as possible.
Next Friday 28th September (last day of school) we will be supporting Red Nose Day to help raise funds for life-saving child health research at school. The children can buy red noses, slap band & car noses for a $3-$5 donation and we would love them to Dress Up in Red on that day for a gold coin. Don’t forget that Hugo Gaddum, Rose Powley, Warwick Moyle and Vance Shoebridge will be shaving their hair off on this day to raise money for the Cancer Society. To make a donation click here.
To Whaea Joanne our guest artist who worked alongside groups of children from Tōtara- (Photography), Tawa (3D Picasso-inspired box construction) and Rimu (Sandra Selwiarg-inspired flags and experimented with different forms of print-making materials). Every day walking into the Kōkako Centre where Whaea Joanne worked with the children was so inspiring. Just to see what the children were creating was ‘wow, just wow!’
To Shaun Coxhead (for his mobile workshop, which had all the bells and whistles-i.e.drills and bolts!) to attach our metal ‘robot’ cans; to Aran Lundberg and Sam Paterson for their work at the workshop also and to Delwyn Brunt and Melanie Davies for glue gun assistance with decorative attachments. It was a fabulous few days of art intensive efforts and we, along with the rest of the Kaharoa children, cannot wait for you all to view our artwork at the Art Exhibition next Tuesday evening.
Heartfelt thanks to all our wonderful parents who donated their time, energy and materials to make our Term 3 Electives so vibrant and exciting for our tamariki. To Melanie Davies, Kylie Day, Rachael McGarvie, Fiona Barber, Jacqui English, Whaea Ngahuia, Jasmin Jackon, Sonia Sampietro-Colom, Carole Dean, Mrs Gaddam, Mrs Vernon, Mr Shoebrige and all the teachers - the children in each of your electives had so much fun and learnt so much
