(Become an Olympic Gold Medalist? )
Amid the great excitement at New Zealand’s first gold medals at the London Olympics, some long-standing staff at Kidsfirst King Street remembered one of those medallists with a smile.
Joseph Sullivan rowed his way to gold in the double sculls at the epic sporting event, along with teammate Nathan Cowen. The 25-year-old attended Kidsfirst King Street, where Head Teacher Jocelyn Cameron recalls a boy who loved to be outside, and playing with his friends on the carts.
It seems outdoor activity and teamwork stayed with Joseph – as he and Nathan showed extraordinary solidarity out on the water to take out the top honour at the games.
And Kidsfirst King Street is celebrating another success in the art arena, recently named in the Top 15 Finalists of the New Zealand Educational Institute ‘I Love Learning’ art competition.
Art has been a strong focus for the kindergarten this year, and it seems that has paid off. We have everything crossed for them to take out the title – watch this space!
