Kaharoa School

Term Four • 2023


As the year draws to a close, we look back on our successes of 2023. Having my first more ‘normal’ year as the principal has been a great success for me - no covid lockdowns, no staffing crisis, no leaking pipes. The PTA tells me lightheartedly that I am no longer the ‘new principal’ at Kaharoa… I can upgrade to just ‘principal’. With a more stable year, we have been able to build into the quality of our educational opportunities for students inside and outside the classroom. Our overall student results show significant progress in student learning and we will report back to the Board on the 18th of December on our 2023 annual plan goals achieved, and next steps for 2024.
