Thousands of people across New Zealand sharing lunch - celebrating children, kindergarten and community…
The Kindergarten Long Lunch was on Sunday, 4 March 2012, International Children’s Day in New Zealand.A fantastic event and a wonderful way to celebrate children, our communities, and raise awareness of the benefits of high-quality early childhood education provided by hundreds of kindergartens throughout the country. Sharing sandwiches at kindergarten, a picnic in the park or by the beach, a street party big or small - kindergarten communities celebrating in different ways.
Because this date was going to be busy in Nelson due to Relay for life and Kiwikids Tryathlon already being organised it was decided that Nelson/Tasman Kindergartens would celebrate in different ways.
On Friday we walked down to Broadgreen Rose Gardens to meet Stoke and Birchwood kindergartens for a picnic morning tea and to listen to Kath Bee. Nayland kindergarten wore red, Stoke was yellow and Birchwood was blue, which made it very easy to spot just where children belonged. It was a busy morning at kindergarten with two fifth birthdays to celebrate as well , but we managed to fit it all in.
Thanks for the parents who came with us.
