End of year celebration

We are rushing through this term, with only one more week of kindergarten left before our long summer break. On Friday, to mark the past year and everyone's contributions and achievements, we held our end of year celebration at Kindergarten.

For a special treat we started the celebrations off with a magic show performed by Mike the Magician. (Click here for a link to Mike's website).

The children loved the show; there was lots of fun and laughter (and not just by the children!) - we were very entertained.

Mike had many willing volunteers who all did an amazing job, showing great confidence to stand up in front of their peers and help with the performance. Have a look at the video clips below. They show firstly Ollie and then Jaxon as Mikes assistant.

After Mike finished we had a few awards to give out. We wanted to say a big big thank you to all those parents, grandparents and friends of Kindergarten who have put their time and energy into making our Kindergarten such a special place. All your work over the year is so appreciated, we really couldn't do it without your support - thank you.

Then it was on to the one slightly sad aspect of the day - saying farewell to our gorgeous teacher Zair who is leaving us to go on maternity leave. The children presented her with a few gifts and a book they had made (there were a few teary eyes!). Good luck with your baby Zair, we will all really miss you.

Shared kai time! What delicious food we had, and enjoyed by everyone.

"It's the little moments that make life big."

Here is a small slideshow of today's events - enjoy!
