In 2007 the wonderful NZ Curriculum was released which highlighted the importance of lifelong learners being confident and creative, connected and actively involved. At this time (prior to the implementation of National Standards) we spent considerable time researching and discussing what the progressions for self management and other capabilities/competencies might look like. Within this was the obvious understanding that all children are on a continuum, at different stages of development and competency. As teachers our role is to identify where your child is on that continuum and the next step for your child. [Read More...]
The PTA will be holding a BBQ & food stall at the Rural Schools Swimming Sports held at school on Friday 2nd March. We desperately need parents to offer their time for hourly slots starting from 9am to 2.30pm on the food stall and parents who can also help with home baking for the day.

Congratulations to the following past pupils who were celebrated at the recent Western Heights High School recognitions assembly for achieving excellence.
Congratulations to the following past pupils who have been selected as 2018 prefects. Well done to Alice Croucher who carries on a fine tradition of Kaharoa children being selected as Head Prefect.

It has been fabulous seeing the pool being used so much over the holidays. It is wonderful to see our facilities benefitting our community. It makes the $6,000 to $8,000 annual investment worthwhile.

As some of you may already be aware we have a pupil at school who quietly and strongly copes with Systemic chronic juvenile arthritis. This young man gets fully involved in our school life despite often being in pain, while at the same time showing great resilience and character. He is currently receiving treatment and this is where we need your help.
Entries are now open for the Junior Tough Guy and Gal Challenge being held on Wednesday 15th August at Lakes Ranch. I will be entering the children as a group for the school or you can also enter online by clicking here. Children must be Year 3 and up. Every child this year will receive a finishers medal once they have completed the challenge.
