Stuffed an­i­mals of all shapes and sizes were taken to Mill Cres­cent Kinder­garten on Thurs­day for a Teddy Bears’ Pic­nic. The young­sters helped make rain­bow cake and honey sand­wiches for the spe­cial oc­ca­sion.

New head teacher Sandi Frearson said there were some new chil­dren start­ing who liked to bring their favourite teddy along for com­fort, and the pic­nic was a nice way to make them feel wel­come.

Af­ter lunch, the kids were taken on a sur­prise bear hunt and treated to some teddy-shaped cook­ies and wa­ter­melon. Ni­cola Ste­wart went along.

Tameika Dar­ling­ton and Dean Cover, both four, with their dif­fer­ent-sized ted­dies. We’re not scared:
