Late last year, Central Kids Fordlands in Rotorua hosted a Community Art Day.
It was a lovely fun day with some magical music and art activities provided by The Travelling Tuataras, face painting with Julie Voss and a sausage sizzle.
At the end of the day, free packs of art supplies were gifted to each family so they could continue the joy of creating int their own time. Of course the environment was also set up for a normal kindergarten day of learning through play, which the big kids enjoyed as much as the little ones!
The funding for our community event has come from the Rotorua Lakes Council Community Grants in conjunction with the Geyser Community Foundation. We are so grateful for these grants as it gives us the opportunity to give back to the community of Fordlands that supports our kindergarten so much. It was lovely to see our ‘Big Kids’ – ex Fordlands Kindergarten children coming back to us for a play.
Central Kids Fordlands, plans to run these events regularly in 2019 and 2020 as well.
