The children have had a growing interest in doctor's and nurse's and caring for one another's injuries. From the children's growing interest we decided to invited the St John's Ambulance along for a visit to show us all the tools and instruments they use to help people. Thank you to Graham North from St John's for taking the time to come along to kindergarten today.

We have been learning the haka and we have been watching this video to learn the words, the moves and get the mood. This is a favourite as is the gingerbread man haka!

Music Visit from Rob Gale

This morning we had Rob Gale visit us from The Funkeys and demonstrate a part of their CD with the tamariki. It was fun and our children were amazing with their listening, thinking and manners.... we can be so very proud of them ......they rock.

We have purchased the CD's to add some variety to the music we have. What we have heard so far is very good. The children have been engaged in the music he shared this morning throughout the session upon their initiation which is a great indication of what they think of it!!!!

Nana's chickens!

Jahrome arrived with his nana very excited about the baby pepe she had at home. We sent him home with the camera to take photos to bring back to share with us and this is the result. Great work Jahrome. They are so cute.
