What a term! Such a busy term from a very unusual start re the Norovirus to yesterday, in great weather conditions, Kaharoa hosting the Bay of Plenty Cross Country Championships! Our grateful thanks go to the Bridge, Zenker, Walshe and Richardson families for allowing us to use their farms for our training, the Interschool Cross Country (19 June) and/or the Bay of Plenty Championships to make this happen. To our fabulous PTA for organising and hosting the food stall with sausage sizzle, soup and homemade baking, to all the families who donated food and time and lastly, but no way in the least, to Vance Shoebridge for walking, walking, walking and setting up the courses and the parking for the event as well as dismantling it all at the end. You are a legend. To the Sport Bay of Plenty team, Melissa, Buddy, Cam, Gareth, Mel and the team for their coordination and running of the event-thank you. [Read More...]

Congratulations to the following past and present pupils who have been selected for the BOP rep and development teams.
It is that time of year again when we will be placing orders for your baby chicks for our Lamb,Calf, Chicken & Kid Day this year. We are pleased to offer students the opportunity to adopt one (or more) ex battery hens. These hens are only 18 months old…. they have years of life and egg-laying ahead of them. They will arrive early in Term 3, healthy, fully vaccinated, docile birds but, quite honestly, looking terrible… pale combs, barely any feathers, and after 8 weeks of standard feeding and care by kids they will be glossy, fully-feathered and most will have started laying eggs again.

Here are some photos of the Kaharoa School Stoat/Rat traps in action. The 10 (double) DOC200 traps that the school purchased with money the House Captains raised a couple of years ago, are part of a line of 58 traps in the Kaharoa Forest. These traps are checked by us and Sue & Peter Williams (KKT volunteers) every 2 weeks. This line of traps are in addition to other traps lines that are checked by other KKT volunteers.
The BOP Cross Country event was held here this yesterday with approximately 420 competitors from 92 schools around the Bay of Plenty involved. These children qualified at their area cross country events and attended this day.
Congratulations to Jack Guyton & Tayla Vanner for being selected for the BOP Representative U18 hockey teams.
