Santa’s Got Nobbly Knees!

December 10, 2018 at 4:03 PM

How do we know? It was so hot on the day of our Preschool Party that he arrived in shorts and jandals – it must be a Kiwi Christmas!

What a fabulous morning! 54 excited, bright-eyed preschoolers took to the stage at the Girls’ School, in front of an audience of almost 250 parents, grandparents, invited guests – and Santa! The annual Christmas concert was their moment to shine and shine they did! With each of the successive eleven songs, a new group of boys and girls came to the front to lead. Yes, our three and four-year olds remembered the words and actions to eleven songs, and what’s more, one was sung entirely in French!

After performing so magnificently, Head of Saint Kentigern, Mr David Hodge congratulated the children on their fantastic effort and encouraged them to give a rousing three cheers for their teachers. Mr Hodge applauded Director of the Preschool, Sue Nash and her team for the fantastic work they do with our youngest Saint Kentigern students. The strong leadership, passion and pedagogy ensures that Saint Kentigern Preschool continues to be highly sought after and a leader in Early Childhood Education.

The concert concluded with Reverend Reuben Hardie’s blessing, before the children and their guests returned to Preschool for a picnic lunch. Santa made his entrance again – this time wearing his ‘formals’ – long pants and black boots! The children were delighted to visit him in his grotto to receive a gift. There were smiles all round!
