 Dear parents and whanau

The teachers and the children have been having a wonderful term with a focus on respecting our environment, including starting to compost our food scraps. We have also been having a focus on prayer and ways of talking and praising God.

The Fish n Chip night was a big success and it was a wonderful opportunity to connect with other families.

For those that missed the power point of our children exploring the kindy environment we have placed a range of photos on display on our notice board, nearest the kitchen,

We have an upcoming Dress-up Day – a Fancy Nancy Day, on Tuesday the 25thJune for the Older Tamariki Session and on Wednesday 26thJune for the Younger Tamariki Session.

The Older Tamariki Session will be going on a bus trip to Te Papa to attend their Matariki programme. This will be on Tuesday 11thJune.



In addition to our current use of te reo we have now started to say a Grace in te reo

E te Atua

Kia taku whānau

Me nga hoa

Mo te kai

Kia ora


Oh God

For our family


and food

We say thank you


Please welcome the following new families to join our Grace Kindy family.

A big Grace welcome to the Lauchlan family, the Pearson family, the Rees-Thomas family and the Tse family.


Parent Help

Thank you to the parents who have signed up for Parent Helpfor term 2. Parent help is a great opportunity to connect with your child and their friends whilst providing much appreciated help for the session.

We are requiring each family of the Younger Tamariki Session to put their name down to two parent helps each. The Older Tamariki Session are needing three parent helps per term. Please note that if you have a child to pick-up from school that the afternoon parent help duty can be made earlier to accommodate this.

Praying for you

Each week the teachers pray for your children. If you have a specific prayer need for your child or for your family please pop into our prayer container (on the sign in table) or speak to one of the teachers. Alternatively feel free to send us an email.

We will happily include that in our weekly prayer time.


Please label your child’s drink bottle and their lunchboxes. A sharpie can be used from the teachers’ office.

Please make sure there are no chocolates, lollies or products containing nuts in your child’s lunch. This includes no peanut butter sandwiches and muesli bars containing nuts. For the Younger Session please do not bring in any whole eggs (such as egg sandwiches).

Winter Clothing

The weather is quite chilly and very changeable, so please remember to pack and label a warm jacket for their outside play.


Waiting List

At the end of term 2 we will have a couple of vacancies in our younger session. Please grab some flyers, from our sign-in table, if you know of friends and family who might be interested in joining the Grace Kindy family.


May God bless you and your children.

Kind Regards from the

Grace Kindergarten Teachers
