Kindergarten Mosaic



A Special THANKS goes to Justine and Sheelagh for volunteering to come in to Kindergarten one HOT summer's day during the holidays and help with the concrete mosaic. We found it to be trickier than we had anticipated - a great learning curve - and we were really pleased with the results... Come to Kindergarten and check it out the finished playground upgrade for yourselves.

Thanks to Niall, Liam, Ari, Troy, Luka and Liam Charlesworth for their help and enthusiasm about the playground. They checked it all out and thoroughly approved.

Visit www.manaiakindergarten.blogspot.com over the following week as we add to the blog and tell the story of the children's return to Kindergarten and their adventures in the new adventure grounds.

Holiday Greetings

We hope that you are all thoroughly enjoying this most amazing summer over the holidays. Beaches, suntans, swimming, boating, fishing, sprinklers - the list goes on. Keep safe, and we hope the rest of the holidays are just as great (though some water for my water tank won't go amiss!)

While you have been sunning yourselves on the beaches it has all been go at Manaia Kindergarten. The workmen arrived on the 5 of Jan and have been slaving away in the hot sun ever since. We will leave some surprises for your return - but in the mean time feast your eyes on these radical changes to the playground and maybe you can begin to make plans about what you could discover and explore on your return on the 27th of Jan...
