We welcomed another opportunity to practice whanaungatanga yesterday,
by developing a relationship through shared experiences and working together, which provides people with a sense of belonging. It was time to celebrate spring, we held a flower show and grandparents/special friends were invited to come along and take part too. Some children arrived with bunches of flowers and there were plenty of other blooms for those who wanted to take part but didn’t bring flowers.
Holly’s Kuia, Nanny Barbara, helped children fill the wheel barrow, what a gorgeous display it was. Tena rawa atu koe/thank you.
Amber skyped her grandparents in Australia, she really enjoyed carrying the laptop around showing them what was happening at Kindergarten, introducing them to her friends and showing them her profile book! Mitchell made the most of having his granddad at Kindergarten too and he was treated to a detailed viewing of Mitchell's book. We were fortunate to have, Heather’s (teacher) grandmother come along and ‘judge’ the flowers in the show. “Putiputi tou/you have beautiful flowers.”
Thanks to the Home and Kindergarten committee members for helping with the morning tea and being there to talk with our visitors.
