POPPY PETE TO RE­TIRE

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

THE an­nual visit from Poppy Pete has be­come a tra­di­tion over the past five years at Beerwah Kinder­garten.

The owner of Pete’s Plant Hire has been vis­it­ing the kindy since his el­dest grand­child Lily at­tended and was taught by co-di­rec­tor Rebecca Mack­in­tosh.

Poppy Pete brings along two of his “dig­gers” for the chil­dren to ex­plore and since Lily grad­u­ated to pri­mary school, her younger sib­lings Iza­iah and El­iz­a­beth have at­tended.

This year, their youngest brother William was proud to have his Poppy visit.

What made this year’s visit ex­tra spe­cial is that Pete is retiring this year and sell­ing his busi­ness.

Miss Beccy said Poppy Pete’s vis­its al­ways cre­ated ex­cite­ment and had be­come “a high­light” of the vis­i­tor cal­en­dar.

“Fam­i­lies play such an im­por­tant role in our kindy and we wel­come and value in­put from all stake­hold­ers.”
