Growing Healthy Hearts

Bulls Kindergarten


For Bulls Kindergarten, holding a healthy heart award contributes not only to the day to day programme, but to who they are and their journey as an enviroschool.

Recently obtaining their healthy heart award through the renewal process at Pā Harakeke / gold level, teacher Kelsi Pratt says that the journey of obtaining and renewing their award has been very rewarding.

“Teachers, children, families, whānau and the community all play an integral role in teaching and learning about healthy lifestyle choices. Going through the renewal process gives us the opportunity to evaluate and reflect on our practices, and plan for how we can continue to deliver quality teaching and learning outcomes surrounding healthy choices.”

With displays throughout the kindergarten and a booklet outlining their journey, Bulls Kindergarten are continuing to share important information surrounding healthy lunch box ideas and healthier living options with their children, families and whānau and the wider community.
