Fathers, Grandfathers and other special family and friends gathered at Little Stars, our on-campus early learning centre on Wednesday 28 August to celebrate Father’s Day. The children were eager to show their special visitors their beautiful early learning centre environment and participate together in the activities set out. The children also presented their dads and granddads with special gifts that they had made for them.
There was heaps of interest in the paper plane making, followed by the test flights in the `flight zone’. The creations were launched, and the distance travelled was measured according to the zone that they landed in – green, yellow, red or beyond. Many designs flew well past the red zone proving to be very aerodynamically sound. Fantastic creativity was observed in the Lego building space, the block and loose parts play area and the playdough table, while gross motor skills were tested on the soccer field, at the bowling lane and then with the bean bag toss. The playground climbing structures and swings, as always, proved very popular.
The aroma of sausages cooking on the BBQ met everyone as they arrived, and children and their family and other guests enjoyed eating the delicious sausages and taking time to catch up with other parents and to make new friends.
The P&F kindly donated the sausages as well as two meat trays as lucky door prizes. These were won by the Croll and Jackson families and we congratulate the winners.
The ELC thanks all families for participating, the College and P&F for their support and the ELC staff for their dedication and hard work in providing this event.
