During these visits, the Library service club members read to and with the children. They engage the children in fun literacy activities while Ms Jacqui runs coordination, movement and team building activities. The biggest benefit our students get from this service is the knowledge that they are making a difference in the community to improve lives. Most importantly, our students learn and practice “empathy” in their interaction with the students.
This week, the kindergarteners visited our school. They watched the fairytale “The three Billy goat gruff” performed by our students. Later the visitors divided up into two groups to enjoy singing with Mr Tim and specific movement activity with Ms Jacqui. To reinforce personal hygiene, Mr Petero played the “toilet tag” game with them which the children enjoyed very much.
The visitors returned to their homes with much to talk about and as their teacher says, “this trip will the topic of conversation for many days to come.” We thank ISS for facilitating this wonderful experience for the little scholars.
Thank you to all the teachers, teacher assistants and students who assisted in making the Bright Little Ones excursion a memorable one.
