Kia Ora Whānau - well all complaints of not enough sunshine last summer have been answered with beautiful weather to start the year. In this warm sunshine we have been able to welcome 30+ new students to our kura, with warm smiles and start-of-year events. The pool has been well used. I opened it at lunch today for over 50 excited kids. Great to see this resource being well used. [Read More...]

Our aim is to send home each major event as a separate email with the information that you need. This makes it easy to search back for an event. Unfortunately at busy times of the year, this can mean you get a number of emails all at once! To support this, we email home a ‘Kaharoa Snapshot’ regularly that gives details of what is happening at school and lists the email information that has been sent. Below you will find a Kaharoa School Snapshot that will help you with the start of the year organisation for your child/ren! The staff are looking forward to seeing you next week. Please make it a priority to attend the Whānau Picnic on 31 January if at all possible. The Kaharoa School Team
