Willmore Kindergarten 40th Birthday Celebrations


The rain stayed away just long enough for us to have our fantastic 40th Birthday celebrations, and what a celebration it was. We had an amazing turn out of people from original committee members and teachers to children who have attended, are attending and those who will join us in the coming years ahead.

There were photos to look at, stalls to browse through, cakes to drool over, sausages to eat . . . .
Stories to listen to, jumping castles to jump on, faces for painting and logos for colouring in . . . .

Previous Teachers and old friends to catch up with, and new friends to share the workload, speeches to hear, and memories to keep . . . .

And of course it wouldn't have been a party without CAKE !

A fantastic day with many people new and old at the kindy celebrating the community that evolves around Willmore. Thank you to everyone who came and shared our special day and we hope we can catch up again soon.

To all who organised, from the largest to the smallest details of the day congratulations on a wonderful job well done!

Our local wildlife

We had our friendly tree lopper in to the Kindy recently to work on some overhanging trees. However when he got up high enough to look at what needed to be done he found our Tawny Frogmouth sitting on some eggs in her nest.

Our Friend was displaced from her original nest after the November 2008 storms and it was so good to see that she has found a new tree to nest in not too far away.

Our tree lopper will now come back at a later date so as to not upset our new Mum and little one.

Fairy Garden Embellishment Project

We have received a grant from Telstra to work on completing our Fairy Garden and to fill it out a little with more plants and extra little surprises.
