SOME OF OUR TOP STORIES
Kidsfirst Wales Street tamariki experienced the Port Hills fires first-hand - they could see it, smell it, and watched helicopters with monsoon buckets fly past overhead. One kindy family was evacuated from their home for five days.
Spending several days on the Port Hills containing hot spots, kindergarten Dad Ben (a Christchurch City Council Firefighter) had presented the hardworking team with a beautiful card full of the children’s artwork and appreciation.
Georgia and Tate were delighted to have their Dad, Ben, stop by the kindergarten, (decked out in his uniform) to talk to tamariki about firefighting and answer questions about his job.
Ben also passed on a big thank you to tamariki for their awesome, arty, sprit-lifting card saying, “the card had really inspired the team and was a welcome relief to look at when coming off the hills for a break.”
