How does Central Kids Elstree Kindergarten in Rotorua exert the concept of manaakitanga?
One way that that our tamariki learn about these concepts how to show kindness and empathy towards others, is by supporting community projects and fundraising events.
On the 25th February, we held a ‘Big Heart Day’ at kindergarten in support of the Heart Foundation to raise funds and awareness about heart disease. Our tamariki showed their support by dressing in red and bringing along a gold coin donation.
There were many activities throughout the day that were either red or about looking after our bodies. The highlight was making strawberry and banana frozen yoghurt, which was devoured at the end of the day.
