Mile­stone a recipe for cel­e­bra­tion

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

While Ti­rau Pri­mary School will marks its 125th ju­bilee this year, an­other Ti­rau ed­u­ca­tion fa­cil­ity will reach a mile­stone.

De­tails are still de­vel­op­ing around Ti­rau Play­cen­tre hold­ing a se­ries of cel­e­bra­tions through­out the year as it marks its 45th an­niver­sary.

Ti­rau Play­cen­tre pres­i­dent Melissa Stratton said: ‘‘We are think­ing of cel­e­brat­ing in dif­fer­ent ways dur­ing the whole 45th year.’’

‘‘I am aim­ing for a joint end of year Christ­mas party for the kids, par­ents, ex­tended fam­i­lies and an in­vi­ta­tion for all past mem­bers and fam­i­lies to at­tend the cen­tre for cel­e­bra­tions. This day would be a Sun­day lunch event [ mid- De­cem­ber],’’ Ms Stratton added.

Lead­ing up to the func­tion, fundrais­ing ef­forts will in­clude the cre­ation and distri­bu­tion of a fun recipe book.

‘‘As part of our fundrais­ing we will be putting out a recipe book with a lot of in­put from promin- ent lo­cals and Ti­rau busi­nesses. A Ti­rau Town Recipe book that just hap­pens to ben­e­fit a very wor­thy lit­tle or­gan­i­sa­tion,’’ she told South Waikato News.

She hopes to ce­ment the cen­tre’s place in the com­mu­nity with strong lo­cal links.

‘‘My aim is to make our cen­tre a well-known thriv­ing part of the Ti­rau com­mu­nity. The past year we have worked at strength­en­ing our links with Ti­rau Pri­mary School, and tried to just get our name out there.’’
