Mainly Music

by Jenny O'Neill

Happy New Year everyone; we hope you had relaxing and refreshing Christmas and New Year holidays.  It is hard to believe it has been nearly two months since our Christmas break-up party.  We are looking forward to seeing how all the little angels, fairies, elves, shepherds, frogs and bees that were there have all grown over the summer break. 

It was sad to say goodbye to some of the wonderful ladies who helped to get us up and running last year.  We thank them for all their time and effort given to run such fun and fantastic music sessions.  However, we have a great array of instruments and props we hand made, such as shakers, drums, rainbow streamers, ducks and frogs to add to the fun for the children and caregivers in the 30-minute session.  This is a great opportunity for parents/caregivers to enjoy time together with their young children while they develop gross and fine motor skills, imagination, language, maths and pre-reading skills.  Following the music session there is a tasty morning tea provided for the children and caregivers -- a chance to socialise with others and develop friendships.  

So if you are keen to enjoy some music, movement, rhyme, rhythm, and more, Blueskin Mainly Music is starting up again at Waitati Hall on Tuesday 15 February at 10am, and every Tuesday after that during the school term.  The cost is $2 for one child and $3 for a family.  We look forward to seeing you and your littlies there.

Any queries please contact Jenny on 027-378 7258.
