End of year Celebration

We are into our final week of Kindergarten before our Christmas break. This term seems to have gone so quickly! At the end of the year we feel it is important to celebrate the past 12 months' achievements and contributions from our children and whanau.

Last Thursday we celebrated with a picnic at Mair Park. What an incredible night this was, and really lovely to see and welcome so many friends, families and past children of Mairtown. We had lots of catch ups!

Many children arrived in some spectacular fancy dress outfits. What a great effort everyone!

Soon it was time for the a little treat as we watched Mike the magician perform for us. Mike had many willing volunteers (and not all children!) 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 and photo clips below.

The children loved the show; there was lots of fun and laughter, we were all very entertained.

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

A big well done and congratulations to the winners of our Christmas raffles.

Next it was time for more fun and a bit of a hunt amongst the trees for some hidden treasure.

We finish for the year this Thursday and will return next year on Wednesday 23rd January. From all of us at Mairtown we wish our children and families a happy Christmas – enjoy your well-earned holidays. I’d also like to say a huge thank you to all our families and whanau over the year for your help at Kindergarten. All your help - no matter how big or small - is really really appreciated and makes a big difference for us as a teaching team. We couldn’t do it without you all.

Good luck and lots of success to our children that are leaving us for school. Although we will miss you all, we know you are ready for this next step in your education – Kia kaha tonu! (Keep going!)
