Xmas Closure. CCELC closes at 3.00pm Friday, 23 December 2016 and reopens on Wednesday, 4 January 2017.

Staff Changes. As you will know Amy is going on maternity leave. Her last day will be Friday, 6 January 2017. Leesa Reeves will be taking over as Centre Manager from 9 January until Amy’s return in September. Diane will be moving temporarily into the Kakas to cover Kirsty’s maternity leave. We have offered a position in the Pukekos to a qualified teacher and we will inform you of this once she has accepted her contract.

Children’s Christmas Party. It was great to see such a good turn out of Creative Corner families. The children’s performance of their Christmas songs was fantastic and the visit from Santa was welcomed with huge enthusiasm by the children. Thanks to everyone who supported the Centre’s Xmas party.

Accounts Payment Reminder. 31 December is the end of the financial year for Creative Corner. Our accountant asks that all invoices for 2016 are paid in full before the end of the year. If this is going to be a problem for you please see Amy or Kate. Thanks.

Emma has graduated. Emma graduated in Christchurch last Wednesday with a Bachelor of Teaching and Learning ECE, and the staff celebrated her achievements with the children. Congratulations Emma and well done on all the hard work you have done to achieve this.

Calendar Fundraiser. Thank you to all the families who have purchased calendars. This fundraiser made $694.00 which was double what we made in 2015. Great stuff.

Gingerbread House Raffle. We are able to give the Salvation Army a large quantity of cans with the great response to our Gingerbread House raffle. This was kindly made by Lauren O’Connor - how talented is she! The lucky winner was Gay Morrison-Stapp.

DRESS UP DAY. By special request Friday, 23 December will be a dress up day at Creative Corner. Children are welcome to come dressed up as anything that takes their fancy. Please remember the Centre will be shutting at 3.00pm on Friday.
