Term 4, 2022

Our new pathway to our entrance has been in production this week, we are so grateful to our amazing Dad's for all their hard mahi in digging and concreting this for us. Many thanks also to Rotary Passport for their grant and our parent reps for their fundraising that made this all come together. We are so lucky to have such amazing support!

 

Grandparents Day  

What an amazing day this was! We had so many Grandparents and Great-Grandparents spend the morning with our tamariki. It was extremely heartwarming to see the aroha between you and wonderful to see you spend time playing and chatting. It shows the importance you place on the early childhood education of our tamariki and we loved having you here. Let's do it again sometime !

 

Bunnings DIY Afternoon


 

Many thanks to the ladies from Bunnings Rotorua for spending an afternoon with us in the first week of this term, helping our tamariki to 

put together some beautiful plants. We dug soil, filled the terracotta pots and planted some beautiful flowers, that are now making our garden look so pretty. 

We would also like to thank Bunnings for giving us a wonderful donation of vouchers to spend in their store, to help us create our indoor nature area with plants and natural resources.

We hope to do this again sometime, as all the children had so much fun being able to plant independently and literally get their hands dirty, immersed in soil and flowers!

Library

We are having monthly visits from the Library. They will deliver a box of books for us to look at and read, then collect them after 4 weeks, and deliver another box! We get to choose the topics we would like and they pick out a few surprises too. 

 

Christmas Party

This year we are holding our Christmas party at Creche from 5.30 - 7pm, on 6th December. 

We have let Hana Koko (Santa) know the date, place and time, and he will be here to say Ho Ho Ho and give a little pre-Christmas gift. 

We will have face painting, balloon creations and a BBQ, plus some games and crafts. Let's make it a wonderful family night to remember!

Staff training

Our staff have been busy with renewing Comprehensive First Aid certificates through the Red Cross. Other courses attended include IYA - Incredible Years Autism, a behavioural course to learn new strategies to help children on the Austism spectrum, a Child Protection course, and a Leadership Bootcamp (not quite as physical as its sounds!). As teachers and in management, we are always learning too!
