Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Whitby’s Dis­cov­ery Kinder­garten cel­e­brates its 40th birth­day on Satur­day, March 15, and is invit­ing cur­rent and for­mer chil­dren, staff and whanau to join in the fun.

A fea­ture of the cel­e­bra­tions will be a photo wall and head teacher Stephanie Jac- obs is keen to hear from any­one who has sto­ries and pho­tos of the kinder­garten, par­tic­u­larly in its early days.

Pho­tos can be emailed to dis­cov­ery@ wn-kinder­ or dropped off to be scanned.

Ja­cobs said it would be great to re­con­nect with chil­dren and teach­ers.

‘‘ Dis­cov­ery Kinder­garten has been a spe­cial part of the com­mu­nity since it opened just four years af­ter the first house was built in Whitby,’’ Ja­cobs said.

‘‘We have had two gen­er­a­tions of some fam­i­lies at­tend. One of our teach­ers was here as a child in 1979 and now her daugh­ter is at Dis­cov­ery.’’

The cel­e­bra­tions run from 1pm till 4pm and will in­clude the pre­sen­ta­tion of a new carv­ing, food and drinks to buy, mu­sic, games and a si­lent auc­tion.

Call on 234 8186.
