It is time to give our little furry Kaharoa School whanau member a name. Our black cat has been visiting us for quite some time and the children have been looking after it extremely well - no surprise it has settled into our school community just fine! As a little fundraiser for food and vet treatment, we have created a name competition - details on the poster attached.

The O’Neill Surf Academy is running a holiday surf programme over the Easter holidays. This is a great way to get the kids active and into a rewarding sport that is accessible to everyone.

Vision and hearing are absolutely paramount to learning and having our children screened free of charge is a fantastic opportunity which is provided by the Empowered Learning Trust.
