Doncaster Park Kindergarten celebrated its 50th birthday on Saturday 16th May with great success!
We had many current and past families attend the event along with many prospective new families visiting for the Open Day to find out more about our wonderful Kinder.
We had visitors who had either attended themselves or had children who attended the Kinder decades ago as well as passersby. The Council Mayor also attended the event and officially opened our new outdoor play area. He was very impressed with our event and our Kinder.
The kids (and parents) enjoyed the entertainment including wildlife animals, face painting, a magic show and jumping castle. Many children also decorated a clay tile, which we will be using to create a plaque for display at the Kinder.
There are a number of people to thank as this celebration would not have been such a success
without the hard work of many.
In particular, a BIG thank you to our subcommittee who worked for over 3 months planning the event
– Arina Oellermann, Minette Cilliers and Meg Cox.
Thank you to the wider parent committee who assisted not only with the preparations but also on the day either cooking sausages, selling tickets or manning the jumping castle. A particular thank you to Tim Gilley and Kristina Phillips who were a great help in the lead up and on the day.
Thank you to all of those parents who either baked cakes/sweets or helped throughout the day behind the cake stall, sausage sizzle or selling tickets – we were overwhelmed with sweet treats from parents which showed us what a fantastic group of families we have who are so willing to help our kindergarten.
Special thanks to our sponsors for the Raffle Table and Sausage Sizzle.
