Active Youngsters

Kelvin Grove Kindergarten

11/Apr/2016

As part of their philosophy to encourage children to stay physically active, Kelvin Grove Kindergarten organised two sporting events this term.

For their “Mini Relay for Life”, the children, teachers and parent helpers walked around the park adjacent to the kindergarten. They also donated a gold coin to the Association’s Ruahine Inspirers team, of which three Kelvin Grove Kindergarten teachers were a part of at the Relay for Life event in March.

The kindergarten also held a Sports Day at the park, where the focus was on participation and sportsmanship. Five activity stations were set up and  children moved around in teams, so that they could give every activity a try. These included high jump, bean bag throwing, ball skills, hurdles, and weaving.

The day was fun filled, with children celebrating each other’s achievements. Along with developing their confidence, self esteem and motor skills, the children were supplied with a bottle of water to promote the importance of staying hydrated.
