Lit­tlies bring their friends along to kindy

Isis Town and Country - - News -

BRING a Friend started off as Grand­par­ents Day at schools and kinder­gartens around the re­gion 20 years ago and in time has gone through a num­ber of changes.

Many chil­dren in Childers don’t have grand­par­ents close and many grand­par­ents work, so the day was changed to Bring a Friend.

Chil­dren have the op­por­tu­nity to bring some­one spe­cial to kinder­garten.

“The idea is that all chil­dren bring some­one spe­cial to kindy – a neigh­bour, god­par­ent, grand­par­ent, aunt or an un­cle, some­one who doesn’t nor­mally get op­por­tu­nity to visit the chil­dren,” Mrs Camp­bell said.

The chil­dren and the guests en­joyed learn­ing songs and rhymes.

The young hosts per­formed con­certs and guests were en­ter­tained for half an hour.

Fol­low­ing the con­cert the guests were treated to a spe­cial morn­ing tea with the chil­dren.

The Mon­day-Tues­day group of chil­dren cel­e­brated with 40 visi­tors and the Thurs­day-Fri­day group en­ter­tained 20 guests.

Each group per­formed its own con­cert.
