Kindy kids raise aware­ness

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By LAURA MCLEAY

Chil­dren from Rawhiti Kinder­garten bright­ened the streets as they cel­e­brated Kinder­garten Aware­ness Week from Septem­ber 26-30.

On Mon­day they went to the park with Mill Cres­cent Kinder­garten to play games and they had a grand­par­ents and spe­cial friends’ day where the chil­dren had a chance to bring some­one spe­cial to kinder­garten and show them what they have been learn­ing.

Rawhiti head teacher Gwenda Smith said it had been a great week and it was im­por­tant to raise aware­ness.

‘‘Go­ing to the park was a fun way for the two kinder­gartens to get to­gether for kinder­garten aware­ness week and it was such a beau­ti­ful day,’’ she said. ‘‘ This week is about us be­ing seen in town and get­ting peo­ple aware. We have had such an en­joy­able time.’’

To end the week, Rawhiti spent Fri­day morn­ing en­ter­tain­ing the lo­cals out­side BNZ bank on Arawa St with mu­sic – some­thing they do ev­ery year.

They also had a win­dow dis­play in town to show what re­sources are used to teach the chil­dren. ‘‘ We also wanted to show the bi­cul­tural em­pha­sis we have at our kinder­garten,’’ Mrs Smith said.
