Tree House - What fun it was!

Recently the Tawa gang enjoyed a field trip to the Tree House.
We chartered a yellow school bus and all of us loaded up and had a tremendous time at the Tree House.
Wish we could go there every day. Enjoy our pictures!

Visiting with the Elders!

Our school age children visited Sheppard’s Care Centre, a seniors residential home.
They performed songs and dances for the seniors and shared stories about their families. This was a great opportunity for them to spend time with the “grandma’s and grandpa’s. This exercise has a great impact on the children as they realize that seniors need many resources and children talk about what they would like to do when they grow up.
Definitely, a learning experience and a great inter-generational opportunity for all our gang.

Having fun at a school playground!

The Tawa gang was lucky enough to visit a nearby school playground on a warm summer’s day recently.
Children enjoyed being active and had a great social time with their friends, peers and teachers. It was lovely opportunity for the children to enjoy this beautiful space.

Parents Participate too!

Tawa preschoolers were fortunate that a parent and her friend visited the Centre recently and read two books to the children. These were “The Thankful Book by Todd Parr and “Will you fill my bucket” by Carol McCloud. These books complimented the importance of values that we were learning about.
Thank you so much parents for visiting and reading to us!

Splash park - Great fun!

Tawa out-of-schoolers and preschoolers had immense fun going to the Millwoods Splash Park to cool down on an extremely warm day.
Children were busy playing and enjoying themselves and we are so thankful to be able to go to this wonderful little park.
Can you see how much fun it was that day?
