Wheel-a-thon 2012

Today we held our annual Wheel-a-thon at Kensington Courts, and what a fabulous afternoon.

There was lots of preparation at Kindergarten today for the sausage sizzle, with help from Whanau and, of course, the children.


The children came up with some great ideas with what to do with the left over bread....make snacks, and marmite sandwiches!

At last 4 o'clock arrived (and it had been a long time coming for lots of us) and we all started to gather at the courts. There was a selection of wheeled vehicles, from bikes, scooters, skateboards, skates and heelys.


Lined up - ready to go!

We were so impressed to see some of the mums, dads, and grandparents who took part - well done!

It was easy to see that lots of time and consideration had gone into making many of the bikes and scooters look wonderful with some fantastic decorating. Great effort everyone.

(We loved the rockets on Aimee's trike.)

Thank you to our families for your support and help.

The events we hold out of our Kindergarten hours are really special to us. It is always such a pleasure to welcome and meet family and friends that are not able to come into Kindergarten, but that we hear lots about through our children.

Money raised from the Wheel-a-thon will go to upgrading our garden area and providing new safety matting. We will let you know as soon as possible how much we raised. Thank you to everyone for making it such a thoroughly enjoyable and fun afternoon.
