Winning garden

Feilding Kindergarten


Keep Feilding Beautiful’s Russell Parker recently presented Feilding Kindergarten with an apple tree, an appropriate prize for the kindergarten’s winning entry into the Manawatu Garden Festival’s school competition.

For the South American themed hat display, the kindergarten created a paper mache cactus, adjourned with colourful sombreros.

The wider kindergarten community was proud to see the creation displayed at the Festival on 9 and 10 May. Coming first in the ECE category was a great reward for an activity the children thoroughly enjoyed and took a lot of ownership for.

The apple tree has since been planted in the kindergarten’s outdoor environment, with the artwork inside for everyone to enjoy.
