Wacky Wednesday

Times are changing at Mairtown Kindergarten, as we farewell our wonderful reliever Donna and we celebrate her time with us through a very special day.  We were inspired by a favourite book of our children titled ‘Wacky Wednesday’ and that’s what we certainly were.

Anyone who knows Donna knows that she loves a good laugh at crazy funny stuff, that’s how we celebrated her time with us, wacky!  It was such a fun day and it was wonderful how so many of our children and their families got into the spirit of the day. 

I loved how there were endless ways to be wacky, it was such a joy watching our children arrive at kindergarten in a variety of costumes including weird hair, wigs, pyjama’s, onesies, crazy hats, clothes back to front or inside out, strange glasses and mix matched shoes.  Not only did the children arrive dressed up, some of the parents joined in the fun.

At whānau time we all joined in a fashion display and walked around kindergarten and returned to the mat to finish off with dancing.


To continue with our wacky theme at lunchtime we incorporated a sausage sizzle to collect gold coin donations for the Cancer Society annual Daffodil Day fundraiser.  Thank you to all our families who supported this cause we raised $89.10.


It certainly turned out to be a wacky Wednesday, here are some of our children’s comments about what they enjoyed about the day:

Inura:  I like playing with Arlo and liked the party dancing.

Sienna: I liked the fashion parade that was my favourite part.

Jack:  Having a sausage sizzle.
Elsie: I liked dressing up and dancing.

Dre-Varn:  I liked dressing up in spider man jarmies.

Milla:  I loved the dancing.

Alex:  I gave my money for a donation bucket.        

Tamsyn:  I liked everything about wacky Wednesday.

Thank you to everyone who arrived at kindergarten a little wacky, it was a fun way to celebrate Donna’s time with us.  Thank you Donna for being an amazing teacher and for relieving with us.  We are all going to miss your joyfulness but we are all happy to know that we will be seeing you again soon.

Mā te wā, Susie
