The Board invites applications from parents who wish to enrol their sons and daughters at Kaharoa School for Term 3 2020. Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office. The enrolment period runs from 4 July 2020 to 25 September 2020. The Board has determined a limited number of places are likely, at some year levels, to be available for out of zone students in this enrolment period. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.

Online Speech & Drama Lessons

posted: Fri, May 01, 2020

Apart from being awesome at what they do, their teachers are just great people and so much fun for their students!
