The original plaque...

 

 

Head Teacher Hilary Waller at Kidsfirst Edmonds Smith St has unearthed the kindy's original 1951 plague.

 

On May 3rd 1951, Woolston kindergarten moved and was reopened as Edmonds Park Free Kindergarten.

 

Another twenty years passed before the kindergarten was moved again - when Edmonds bought two properties on nearby Smith Street and proposed moving the kindergarten there, during the early 1970's. 

 

It re-opened at Edmonds Smith St, on the site it is still located at today.
