It's that time of year where despite the cold and damp conditions children all over the country are out training. Many children look forward to this time however one in four children aged 6-13 don't really enjoy this according to research conducted by Sport NZ. Karen Laurie (Sport NZ Young People consultant) considers this a missed opportunity stating, "Running in the natural environment is a tremendously accessible form of physical activity".

We enjoyed a great ‘racing at our Kaharoa & Rural Schools Cross Country event on Tuesday 19 June. Thank you to the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) for providing the sausage sizzle & food stall and to all the wonderful Kaharoa School parents who supported on the day with the bbq, marshals, baking etc. Thank you to Heller’s for Schools, for donating 480 sausages for this event. Many thanks to the Walshe family for the use of their farm and their mule for the first aid and the Bridge family and the Zenker family for making their properties available. Thank you to Vance for the set up and pack down of the event.

As part of our communication topic Rooms Rimu visited the Rotorua Public Library MakerSpace last week.
On the 14th June, Room Rata went to the Makerspace at the public library. They had lots of fun making M-Bots, driving them around obstacles, and doing some coding on Scratch. It was a fantastic day where students were fully engaged in the whole process.
Kaharoa School will be hosting the BOP Cross country event at our school on Tuesday 26th June (PP Thurs 28 June). Children who qualify from our rural cross country event next week will compete at this event.

Congratulations to the following WHHS students who are past Kaharoa kids:
The Year 8 hockey team, siblings and other Kaharoa school children doing a sterling job of manning the Kaharoa School hockey BBQ all by themselves (with a bit of parent help behind the scenes). They had a rota system so that not all were manning the stall at the same time, although some stayed for the whole morning because they were so keen. They really seemed to enjoy the challenge.
The 3/4 & 5/6 rippa rugby teams had a great day on Friday. The weather was perfect and the kids were excited yet somewhat nervous with some in the team having never played before. Everyone had a go with many tries scored overall and many more ‘rips’ achieved. All came off the field muddy but happy, and feeling quite chuffed with themselves for trying so hard. Congratulations to the Year 5/6 team for being the Plate Winners.
