BOT PROFILE –
Carl Brickle
Gidday, I'm Carl Brickle and am a fresh face this year to the Creative corner BOT.
Together with my wife Janelle, we are the parents of Lachlan (6 - at school), Oliver (4 - starting school August) and Taylor (2 - Pukekos) and enjoy and appreciate the environment found at Creative Corner over the last few years while all our boys have been a part of it.
I love being a Dad to our boys. I really enjoy sharing with them practical skills and a 'give it a crack' attitude. I really enjoy exploring the outdoors, boating, flying, playing musical instruments and projects at our home.
By day I am an operations manager, which gives me practical skills to get stuff done and relating to people.
I look forward to working with fellow BOT members, management and staff to continue to build and promote Creative Corner and also represent parents as best I can. Cheers, Carl

NON-ATTENDANCE FORMS SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

MATARIKI CELEBRATION
Thanks to all families that celebrated Matariki (Maori New Year) with us last Friday. Each child received a painted stone to take home. These were kindly painted and donated to the Centre by Rose Fauth. Thanks Rose. We also had a shared kai which was a yummy soup made from the vegetables donated by families earlier in the week.

WINTER ILLNESS
Please remember to bring your child to preschool with a jacket and hat so they are able to play outside during the colder months. Please be aware that children at the Centre are facing the usual coughs and colds.
