Dear Parents, Staff and Friends,
Thank you for the role you played in making 2014 such a special year for me and for EcoKids.
We could not have imagined the joy and excitement that the children brought to our school. For so long it was a dream, then the dream became a building… but when the first day of school arrived in January this year, the dream was filled with heart and soul… happy, inquisitive faces and the sounds of laughter, singing and play.
It is not often that you can say you have achieved a dream and I am so happy that I have such wonderful people sharing this dream with me. Thank you for believing in us and trusting your most precious children to our care.
Wishing you all a joyous Christmas and look forward to an even more exciting year together in 2015!
Love Anita and Family
Hope you enjoy the photos of our wonderful Christmas Party… thank you once again to that Very Special Lady.
To everyone who attended our EcoKids Art evening, I am sure you will agree that it was a fantastic, fun filled evening. The snacks provided by the parents were amazing and the weather was perfect.
The teachers put on an incredible display of the children’s art.
At this young age, the process of creating their art is far more important than the finished product. They need to learn how to manipulate equipment, discover textures and different medium. They experiment with colour, construction, dry art, wet art and different concepts. All the things we as adults call art.
Creativity as an outlet for young children to express themselves is so important. To see the concentration and pride, the intense pleasure and satisfaction that happens in our art studio on a daily basis makes it my favourite space in the school.
It takes creative people to have vision and genius like my teachers have displayed this year. So I insisted on all the teachers and assistants showcasing their own talents too. I must say, it was so wonderful to have a good excuse to prioritise my creative work.
Thank you to all who took the time to make marble fish for their children and engage in the fun of syringe painting and nature painting. It is lovely to let go and let your inner artist out!
We look forward to next year’s event and I am already thinking that this year is going to be a tough act to follow!
