We commemorated ANZAC Day today by making ANZAC biscuits and painting poppy flowers. We spoke about the brave soldiers and read some wonderful picture books about this important day. We also listened to the ‘Last Post’ and had a moment of silence. Lest we forget. 🌹
A little 'save the date' for our upcoming working bee.

Details to be confirmed closer to the day.

It was perfect weather for our Term 1 kindy event, Clean Up Australia Day play! A big thank you to everyone who came to Bowden Park for an emu parade, play and ice block! We cleaned up the beautiful park, enjoyed seeing our friends and meeting new friends.
Just a reminder with the Autumn weather proving to be more like Summer weather, we ask that all families please consider sun safety when sending their children along to kindy. As we have outdoor playtime, it is important that your child is protected from exposure to ultraviolet rays as much as possible. SLIP. SLOP. SLAP!
