Fire Engine visit July 2019

Today the children had a visit from the Upper Moutere Fire brigade.

A big thank you to Susan, Ross and Fiona for coming to the centre to talk about fire safety.  They read us a story about how when there is a fire we should “Get Out, Stay Out, Well Done”.  The tamariki also got to see the fire engine and all of the different parts that help to put out the fires.  The best part was when they got to sit in the back of the fire engine and when they left they turned on the siren.

Supporters of Country Kids

Kia ora! Supporters of Country Kids (SOCK) is a new initiative. 

SOCK is aiming to be an informal database of parents, grandparents, staff and Moutere locals. It will endeavor to support Country Kids in lots of ways including; parents evenings, fundraising, working bees, baking, catering, maintenance, decision making, promotion, Christmas parties – basically the possibilities for contributing to our community centre are endless! 

We ask that ONE member of your household fills this form out, taking into account both caregivers. We ask that you complete it regardless of whether or not you want to be involved. We then ask that you please pass it on, by forwarding the email link, to any other members of your extended whanau that might be interested in being involved with Country Kids in some small way. 

Please note that this is not a binding commitment! It is simply an opportunity to collect and collate the talent and aroha that exists in our valley. Thanks in advance!

Gymnastics with Sam

Every Monday our Just 4 Kids children head over to the Community Centre to have a gymnastics session with Sam. Tasman Gymnastics club

They even have a brand new walking track now thanks to the Residents association.

Our J4K children are really enjoying learning new skills and trying out new equipment.  They’re all keen to have a go at the physical activities on offer – whether climbing, swinging, balancing, jumping or clambering over obstacle courses.  They are becoming really capable and confident – pushing themselves to master new skills and practice already established skills with energy and enthusiasm.
