Each year, the first Sunday in March is dedicated to Children's Day. To help celebrate Pahiatua Kindergarten and Holyoake Kindergarten teachers worked alongside each other at the Pahiatua Family Picnic in the Park. The event, held at Carnival Park, was a community day based on the theme ‘treasure our children'.
Pahiatua Kindergarten supplied resources and on-hand support for the making of stone pets. It was great to see so many creative creatures go home with their proud creators. Guests to the marquee also enjoyed a variety of books and puzzles, supplied by Holyoake Kindergarten.
The teachers enjoyed their day together, and found it rewarding to recognise families and the local community who work hard to nurture strong, happy and healthy children. Both kindergartens are looking forward to participating again next year.
