Kaharoa School

Term Four • 2021

A Word from our Principal

As we race towards the end of the term, I’ve been working with a few students who have hit a speed bump, and need to make some adjustment to their driving style. My personal view on human development is such that I see mistakes as an opportunity to learn and grow. There is often a need for consequences but this is alongside character growth conversations with a focus on restoration, and goal setting for positive future decision making. Hitting a speed bump too fast has an impact on the others travelling in our car, and is an opportunity to stop, reflect, consider others, put things right, and look ahead. Our Cornerstone Values provide a positive framework for these conversations with students. Some individuals hit more speed bumps than others, and learning to manage self is a process over time. Thank you for your support as we work together for the best possible growth and learning for our tamariki. [Read More...]

Last Thursday, Room Rata spent the day at the Classic Flyers Aviation Museum in Mount Maunganui. It was an awesome experience and allowed the children to see real life and replica planes that we have learnt about whilst studying Jean Batten. We had rides on a vintage fire engine, walked through a World War 2 Catalina and sat in the pilot seat of a Victa Airtourer T-3A! If you’re ever in Mount Maunganui with some spare time, check it out!
