Well done to this week’s children, Tahu & Levi for receiving their certificates for their amazing acts of KINDNESS. Room Matai also went on a exciting class trip to the Airport to visit Ms Rockell who works for Air New Zealand. Thank you so much for showing them around and set up a pretend aircraft and treated us like VIP passengers from the start the end. The children were able to see some exciting equipment and a ride in the fire truck.
Please return all the allocated Kaharoa t-shirts, track-suits and netball dresses to school asap unless you are playing touch rugby, cricket or ukelele. If they are not returned you may be charged to replace the item.
On Friday 30 November the children will be working on a flower project in their classrooms. See the attached for the foliage and props they will need to bring on the day.

(A special mention of thanks to the lovely Anna Weaver who has stepped away this term due to coaching a touch team) .
