NEWS FROM AROUND
There was a sausage sizzle, cake and a bouncy castle to celebrate 50 fantastic years at Kidsfirst Portsmouth Street.
In attendance were blasts from the past, those who (now grown-up) had attended the kindergarten when they were little, as well as some of the kindergarten's supporters, current children and parents with a past association with the kindy.
Aaron's daughter currently comes to the kindergarten, but he remembers it from the 1970s when he went there himself. He says he was pleased to see the tree was still there and that otherwise, while things had changed, it was still satisfyingly familiar.
The team from Bunnings Shirley, donated their time and materials to help with planting some native grasses and constructed a commemorative 'Friendship Bench' to the kindergarten.
Meanwhile previous Portsmouth Street teachers Sarah and Yvonne joined the current teaching team of Janine, Poe, Bernie and Tasha to celebrate this milestone.
