Our Christmas Party 15 December 2009

Today Fairy Claire came to our Christmas Party in the gorgeous garden belonging to St Andrews Church.

Making a wish is serious business!

Star Boy was lost but we helped Fairy Claire find him in a tree!

Everyone had a great time!

A Christmas Gig Friday 4th December

On Friday we were invited to sing to the 'Old Folk' at the Care and Craft Club at the St Andrews Parish Centre.
Wearing Santa hats we sang and danced the songs that we had been doing this year at Kindy.

The old people there were delighted to see the fresh young faces of the children and enjoyed our time there very much.

The children sang really well and didn't seem fazed at all by the audience!

In the top photo we are singing our Dingle Dangle Scarecrow song!

Five Fierce Pirates are striding out to sea in the lower photo!

Botanic Gardens Sculpture Exhibition 2 December

On Wednesday 2 December a group of us from Kindy went by bus to the Sculpture Exhibition at the Botanic Gardens in Manurewa.

The first thing the children saw when we walked into the building was an exhibition of small sculptures. They loved them.

But when they went through the glass doors to the outdoors and saw some of the sculptures that they had seen in our book at Kindy, their excitement grew.

We were amazed at how interested they were in the sculptures, talking about them, feeling them, walking around them.

But morning tea was the first item on the agenda!!

...and watching the baby ducklings was a close second!

We didn't manage to see the whole of the gardens or all the sculpture exhibits. We all saw different parts of the show and gardens but all thoroughly enjoyed it and plan to take another group next year.

The time came to go home in our bus all too soon! Although it was a rainy day no one seemed to notice!

GRAND OPENING of the 'Hidden Garden"

Today Tuesday 1 December saw the Grand Opening of our new 'Hidden Garden'
Dressed for the occasion we pulled back the red velvet curtain and cut the ribbon!!!

Then everyone went under the curtain to admire the flowers and vegetables that are growing bigger as we watch!

Admiring all the plants is hungry work so we feasted on strawberries (not grown in our garden though) .

Thanks for coming everyone!
