It was wonderful to welcome nine of 14 new families to our 'Meet Your Teacher' morning last Tuesday and our three new teachers, Denise Sharp (Room Totara), Shanelle Kivell (Room Miro) and Kimberlee Fields (Room Matai). Next year we start with a full roll of 199 and 26 new children starting on our first school day, Wednesday 30 January. [Read More...]
A very Merry Christmas from all the staff to our wonderful parents, caregivers and amazing community. Have a fabulous summer break, be safe and we will see you back on Wednesday 30 January 2019.
Thanks to everyone for dropping off scrap metal you had lying around home. We have already raised approximately $1866 from this so please keep the scrap metal coming as you can still drop items off at MaCaulay Metals on Old Taupo Road indefinitely and use KAHAROA SCHOOL as reference and they will donate the money to the school.
There are still a number of families with outstanding fees for 2018. Please pay these by the end of this week. You can either pay by cash or direct credit into the Kaharoa School bank account number 12 3155 0189083 00. Phone or email the office and we can let you know what is outstanding. Thanks for your understanding and support.
The 2019 Kaharoa School class stationery lists for 2018 are available online and in store.
Order these really cool covers now for your child/ren’s exercise books for 2019. Awesome designs and so easy to apply! We love helping you by making book covering easy.
Congratulations to the following past pupils for winning these awards:
Well done the students in Room Tawa for organising a bake sale to raise money for the Maungatautari Ecological Island. They raised $207.60 which is such an amazing effort!
Good luck to the Year 8 students as they move onto High School. You have been brilliant role models for our young students.
Recently Room Kowhai had a sleepover at school and a trip to Paradise Valley Springs.
Sending Love is about people and communities coming together to make a festive gesture towards another person who may experience loneliness over Christmas. It is one person putting love and thought into a card to pass a smile and a sense of feeling remembered and loved onto another person.
Room Totara travelled over to Cambridge recently to experience the Avantidrome.
A heartfelt thank you from Chrissi who runs the Trinity Centre at Ngongotaha. The amount of people coming to shop with them has increased to around 80 families - the need in the community is great particularly at this time of year.
This year our year 8 students from Room Totara have once again been presented with a totara tree. We would like to thank Diane and John Coleman from Treeline Native Nursery for their generous support, donating a tree to each year 8 student. Your generosity and kindness is very much appreciated, thank you.
Kaharoa School was recently invited by Geyser City Cricket to enter a team and additional players to make up a composite team to compete in an inaugural 8 aside, four team, cricket competition to be played on Thursday nights throughout November. The other Schools involved were John Paul College and Mokoia Intermediate. Each of the three schools got to host a round on special portable, artificial pitches and all four teams played at the same venues on the same nights.
On Wednesday the 5th December I went to a sports day at Rotorua Intermediate School. The sports day was organised by the Halberg Trust. We got to do sprints, discus and shotput. We also played wheelchair games in teams. The games were wheelchair rugby and basketball. This was a fun day.
