Welcome to our new families of Jasper Herbert, Paige Harrison and Lily Brears. Congratulations to Mandy, Rob and the Trass family on the safe arrival of William Joe on Tuesday 23rd February.
Thank you to John Bowyer for keeping our plants watered and cared for over the holidays. We also would like to thank Mike Goodwin for spraying the community garden for weeds and for his great effort again this year of being our friendly Santa with Sandra (Mrs Claus). Thank you to Christian and his family for the kind donation of the animal farm, the children are really enjoying exploring the animals and their transport items too. Thank you to the many families who have shared surplus produce from their home gardens.
Learning at Preschool
Chinese New Year - the children have been learning about The Chinese New Year and how this is celebrated. Together they have created their own Chinese Dragon. They also celebrated with food, fresh vegetables home grown at Preschool, tasty stir fried vegetables Chinese style were tasted and enjoyed by the children at the extended session. Some of the children were lucky to see the Chinese celebrations at the night market. The children have shared their interests which are now on the door for you to view. We ask all parents to offer how we could include something of your family’s culture this term.
We are learning about keeping ourselves sun-smart, being careful around driveways and revisiting safe rules while at Preschool. We have reminded the children of 5 rules that everybody needs to know:
1 Walking feet
2 Gentle hands
3 Inside voices
4 Listen to the teacher
5 Eyes on the teacher (mat times)
