How does our garden grow?

With money received from HEHA (Heart Foundation) funding, help from parents and committee, and hard work from the children and teachers we have established our 'community garden'  Mosaic pavers made by the children (with help) are in place and we are planning to purchase some seating, making this a relaxing space where anyone can go for some quiet time. We have sent invitations to the local community inviting them along to share some kai and see what we have achieved.  
We also continue to foster links with our local community through regular contact with Concord School and classes make regular visits to share books and stories. As well as promoting language and communication skills children are able to share time with their older siblings and other close friends.   
Our new trolley and light table have arrived and as you can see the trolley is a popular addition to our outdoor wheeled toys

You are about to be snapped!   With the recent purchase of 2 new digital cameras, used along with other media our children are further developing their skills in technology (so far a camera dropped in water has survived!!) and we have set up our television to revisit childrens learning for each day - through slideshows and videos. 
Watch for more christmas news coming soon!
