We had a great visit to Orokonui Ecosanctuary with Tahu Mackenzie.
The children were met by a 'giant kaka' who told us a story about the
birds of New Zealand. We then went for a walk to discover wild kaka,
wood pigeons, brown creepers, grey warblers and tuis. We also
discovered tadpoles in the ponds and learnt about the trees that were
being planted. Finally we all made fabulous bird masks.
Playcentre is a wonderful place to gain new friends and keep up with
old ones. Feel free to stop by for a cup of tea and see what we are
all about. We are open on Tuesday (10.30 to 1.00), and Wednesday &
Thursday mornings 9.15 to 12.15.
We cater for children aged from birth right up to 6 years of age,
their parents and caregivers. Come and get to know other parents with
young children in the community. For information you can call our
centre ph 027 2277329 or contact Mary-Jane Mirfin on 482 1962.
