A special welcome to Brock who joins us from Canada. Kohara have quite a few connections with Canada now! We hope you enjoy being part of our class Brock and it has been lovely to see you settle in and make friends so quickly.

It would be appreciated if children could wear suitable shoes for running in as we will be practising our running and relays over the next few weeks in the lead up to our junior sports later in the term.

We will also be joining the Y3-6 students for lunch down at St James park on Wednesday 28th October (postponement date is Friday 30th). Parents are welcome to join us down there for lunch from 1-1.30pm and after lunch we will be joining in the running relay fun with several Kohara teams participating. The PTA are running a sausage sizzle on the day and orders can be pre-purchased on Tuesday 27th October outside the coffee shop in the morning. $2 a sausage - don't forget to order extras for Mums, Dads, brothers, sisters etc who might be joining us there.

PTA Fundraiser
The Big Event is coming up on Saturday 31 October at 7.30pm. This is the PTA's main fundraiser for the year so it would be great to see as many Kohara parents there as possible. You can also bring non-Waimari friends along for a night out! Tickets are $30 each from the office and include the entertainment and supper. Cash bar. We'll be there with our dancing shoes on - hope to see you there! If you have any questions, feel free to ask us.

PTA Meeting
If you're interested in coming along, the PTA is meeting this Tuesday 20th October at 7.30pm in the school library. It was so lovely to see a few new Kohara parents coming along last month. If you'd like to pop along you would be more than welcome :)

Welcome Back to Term 4!

Welcome back to Term 4. It promises to be a rather busy term with lots of fun and learning.

Term 4 is our Health & PE focus. We have athletics and school swimming later in the term and will be joining the seniors at their athletic sports day for a shared lunch and some relays.

Term 4 is also a sunhat term. Please can all children find their blue school sunhat and have it at school everyday as we will require these when we are outside enjoying our PE sessions as well as for morning tea and lunch times.
