The staff, children and their families at Central Kids Kindergartens – Kihikihi would like to the NZ Lottery Grants Board for their generous grant of $12,000 to help fund our carpentry shed.
This grant was utilised, along with local community fundraising, donations from Mitre 10 Mega Te Awamutu and a generous contribution from FBR Building, which allowed the commencement and completion of the long awaited carpentry shed. Tamariki, their whānau and future generations will be able to enjoy this building for years to come.
The shed is now in use and as children construct their creations, mathematical concepts, problem solving skills, communicating with each other and working as a team are being promoted as they learn through their play. This structure provides shelter from the wind and rain allowing tamariki to continue their play and learning regardless of the weather.
Thanks again everyone who supported this project. We now have an amazing structure that has enhanced our kindergarten environment.
