Agricultural Day


Hora Hora School's annual agricultural day is a cherished event that exemplifies the deep connection between the school and its community. This special day, held each year in the heart of the picturesque countryside, brings together students, teachers, parents, and local residents in a celebration of rural life and the importance of agriculture.

The Hora Hora School community wholeheartedly embraces this event, with families and teachers working tirelessly to prepare their children's animals and projects for display. This event not only fosters a sense of togetherness but also imparts vital life lessons about sustainability, responsibility, and the significance of agriculture in their lives.

The Hora Hora School agricultural day serves as a living testament to the enduring bond between the school and its community, where traditions are upheld, knowledge is shared, and a love for the land is passed down through the generations.

Launchpad 2024
Kia ora Parents/Caregivers,
Launchpad (formerly Bible in Schools) is an opt-in Christian Values Education programme that operates in our school. 
The programme is a fun 30-minute session run by trained volunteers which encourages children to grow in their sense of mana, self-worth and character. The programme is presented through the art of story-telling, multimedia, interactive games and activities. 
Each lesson has a specific learning outcome and reinforces the values found in the New Zealand Curriculum. Stories are presented from: 
     •The Bible 
     • NZ Māori History 
     • Inspiring Stories from around the World
 Some of the values presented are: 
     • Respect 
     • Friendship 
     • Resilience 
     • Helping others 
     • Making good choices 
     • Having courage 
Every child, no matter their views, beliefs or culture, is welcome to join. Our presenters acknowledge and respect that there are many worldviews. In our programme, children are affirmed and encouraged. 
The Ministry of Education has now made it mandatory for all children who attend a programme such as a Launchpad session to complete this opt-in form.  
The Launchpad programme runs weekly during term two and three in Karaka on Mondays from 1:30 to 2:00pm and is available to tamariki in all years.  

 

Board By-Election: Please get your voting forms in before 4:pm on Thursday the 23rd of May. No voting papers will be accepted after this time.
