HELLO FROM KERRY, OUR NEW PUKEKO TEAM MEMBER
To all whanau and staff at Creative Corner I would like to thank you for making me feel welcome over the last couple of weeks, as I settle into my role as Team Leader in the Pukeko Room.
My husband (Reuben) and I recently moved from Christchurch to Temuka, with our dogs Floyd and Scout.
We are a large blended family with eight children between us. This makes for a lot of fun, excitement and busy times, but now that they are young adults they have chosen to remain in Christchurch.
I am excited to be a part of the Creative Corner community and look forward to building my relationships with you and all tamariki.

TRIKEATHON SPONSORSHIP
Thanks to all parents who have returned their child’s sponsorship money for this fundraiser. Once everyone has returned their money we will advise the total raised. Thanks for your support once again.

Mindful (Mana Atua) March We are celebrating Mindful (Mana Atua) March with the tamariki at Creative Corner. You may like to talk with your children about this during the month.

CENTRE VALUES
Continuing our focus on our Centre Values, below is what “Play” might look like in the Centre. When we look at the value of “Play” it is important for a number of reasons:
1. We are a place for children and we value that our children enjoy their time here and have fun.
2. “Play” encompasses the skills of playing alongside others, turn taking, being part of something and having a good time.
3. “Play” also speaks to us on being able to have a laugh, look at the lighter side of things and generally having a good time.
We will continue to promote these Values in the Centre and share with you in our newsletter and our notice boards.
