Preschool Manager

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

I hope you were all able to take a break over the end-of-term holidays. I was very excited to take a break and enjoy a week at Mt Ruapehu with my family. It was very cold however we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

It’s great to be back at preschool and I’m looking forward to planning exciting events and activities with our preschool team for term 3. We are already in the process of planning a snow day for our preschool children to enjoy, we have a large truck drop off snow for children to play in.  We will let you know the details once we have finalised them.

Holiday Fun!

Our preschool has enjoyed a range of events at preschool over the school holiday period. It was lovely to observe children enjoying making baked goods to take home and share with their families.  Our lovely Junior teachers made homemade bread for their baking day and the junior children enjoyed eating a slice at lunchtime.  They were very proud of what they had made and ate every bit of it!

 

Our Junior and Senior children enjoyed the Matariki puppet show.  This was a great way to introduce the meaning of why we celebrate Matariki.  It was quite a long show and I was amazed by how focused our preschoolers were throughout the production.

 

 

 

New Music Teacher

This term we are lucky to have Carey La Trobe running our music programme in the Junior and Senior rooms.  Carey has worked closely with our primary music teacher, Mrs. Jo Molyneux, and will continue to access resources from our Primary school music department.
