Time to cel­e­brate at kindy

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

It was party time at Mun­gavin Kinder­garten last Fri­day when its new marae-style en­trance was opened.

The dou­ble gate en­trance, fea­tur­ing manuka tree branches from Pau­ata­hanui and carved wooden pan­els from the story of Porirua’s tani­wha Te Awarua o Porirua, is the first of its kind in Porirua.

The carvings were done with­out charge by Ari Karati, a past par­ent at the kindy.

It has taken the kinder­garten two years to raise the $10,000 cost of build­ing the en­trance.

Ropu said it was a credit to past and present fam­i­lies who had sup­ported the kinder­garten’s fundrais­ing ef­forts.
