Jubilance at the spray park!


To combat last week’s hot weather, Tawa preschoolers and out-of-school care children enjoyed an outing to the newly renovated Millwoods Spray Park.
Children and staff enjoyed getting cooled off naturally by the water fountains, and the sun dried up their clothing. They enjoyed a picnic lunch and it was a wet and fun filled day for all.
Oh! the hot and humid summer weather calls for spray park activities, doesn’t it?








A lesson in Agriculture!


Tawa learners were excited when Mrs. Dentman from Biovision Seed Labs visited our Centre to talk to the children about plants and seeds.
Children were excited to participated in the experiments that were set up. We found that when food colors are added to white flowers, they absorb these colors. This was new information for the children and they were fascinated over a week watching and discussing the changes they could see.
Later, we took seeds and did some planting. Some of us have a green thumb while others don’t.
We were wondering if these seeds would grow later. I guess we will just keep a close eye on the changes.

Picnic in the park!


The Tawa gang was excited to board the big, yellow school bus to go on a field trip to the
Wm. Hawrelak Park.
We were fortunate that the weather was nice and we escaped the rain. Children enjoyed playing in the playground and then had a picnic lunch at the Park. Children and staff had fun enjoying the good weather outside and having a big park to play in together.

Tawa'Lympics


Tawa preschoolers and school-age children participated in our annual Tawa ‘Lympics.
Children and staff planned the events that were going to unfold that day. After a lot of discussion, three sports events were planned per age group.
Everybody got a chance to participate and do their best. Gold, silver and bronze medals were handed out to all the top winners, and all the other participants were rewarded with another medal or a ring of their choice.
What a fun event on a nice, summer day. We are all looking forward to next year’s Tawa “lympics. Hip, Hip, Hooray!

Fun at a Community school playground!


Tawa preschoolers and school-age children have been visiting the school playground during the summer.
The weather was gorgeous last week and our crew had fun spending time experiencing the great outdoors and exercise to make big, strong bodies.
Hope you all had a great time outdoors too.
