As you know the centre has been working towards renewing our accreditation for our healthy heart award. Our aim for participating in this programme is to educate the children in developing ideas of healthy eating and physical activity.

We are pleased to announce that this morning Abi from the Heart Foundation came in to present us with our Silver award. The Pohutukawa room hosted the morning, kicking it off with some dancing, followed by a presentation, a planting of a blueberry tree and a delicious healthy morning tea.

We would like to thank the teaching team for the effort they have made as we have worked towards gaining this award, along with the support of whānau. We acknowledge the effort many parents have made in providing healthy lunches on Lunchbox Friday’s and for the support in renewing our polices. What a great team effort in ensuring that our tamariki get the best start and gain positive ideas surrounding their health and well-being.
