Practice makes perfect
Kidsfirst Hargest Crescent had a pleasant surprise recently when a new whare was delivered to the kindy thanks to the handy work of Fletcher’s Construction.
The construction company approached the kindy late in 2012, to see if they were interested in a new playground addition but Head Teacher Robin McGregor says she’d nearly given up on the idea.
“When they first rang of course I jumped at the chance. But then we waited and waited and I’d rung up to ask about its whereabouts a couple of times until one day the phone rang and the guys wanted to drop it off that very afternoon!”
The construction company has been making the playhouses as practice for apprentices and grateful kindys have loved the kind donation.
Other Kidsfirst Kindergartens have received playhouses each as well.
“The children absolutely love it – they’ve been checking the builders’ work just like the engineers do and found it is up to scratch.”
KIDSFIRST KINDERGARTENS ARE A NOT FOR PROFIT ASSOCIATION THAT HAS DEVELOPED AND MAINTAINED KINDERGARTENS IN CHRISTCHURCH, CANTERBURY AND ON THE WEST COAST FOR OVER 100 YEARS - AS THE PLACE LOCAL KIDS COME TO LEARN, PLAY AND HAVE FUN.
It was a nice surprise for kindy when a new playhouse turned up.
The work of trainees at Fletcher's Construction made and donated the playhouses.
The kindergartens were thrilled.
