Celebrating each other and bringing our community together.

Dear whānau,

Waka Huia and Best Start Russell Street are having a fun get together for a range of groups of preschool children (4 to five year olds) from our contributing ECE community. 

This will be a fantastic opportunity to enhance and foster the connections with our Early Childhood Centres and their children before they start school, wherever those children may be starting their school journey. 

The morning will involve doing some fun, interactive play activities (including a bouncy castle) and a shared morning tea.

The date for our celebration is next Thursday 19th March, starting at 9.00 a.m. and finishing at 10.30 a.m. We will be having an early morning tea on this day.

As part of our hosting and showing our value of manaakitanga, Waka Huia will be providing the baking and the fruit snacks for all of our guests. We would love your support and would appreciate if every family could please bring a plate of baking (does not have to be home baked!) for sharing. Please deliver this to Waka Iti (Smaller Room 1) Thursday 19th March in the morning. If there are a couple of parents who could help out in the morning that would be great too. Just let either Nicole or Kelly know.

We are really looking forward to the day and judging from our previous success from 2019 we anticipate more celebrations throughout the year.

Kind regards

Nicole and Kelly (Waka Huia, RSS) and Kylee (BestStart Russell Street)
