Farewell and happy school days to Hana Shakyla and Lysandra. They all start school this term. You will be missed at Globalkids. Welcome Nova, Mila, Nena Riley C, Riley T, Alexander, Cairo, Hugo, Baani and Mamoe and their whānau to the Globalkids family.
We have an exciting opportunity for Globalkids. We have many languages spoken at our centre by staff and parents. As well as English and Maori we have Japanese, Kurdish, Hindi ….And now we have the amazing opportunity to add French. We have a group of French speaking families who will start attending on a Wednesday. We will have a French speaking teacher, Ellina who will support all children and teachers in speaking and understanding the French culture. We expect that our tamariki will be richer from these families attending as they are used to celebrating the language and culture of their friends and this will be one more culture that teaches them about the world.

As you are all aware, late last year we gained our healthy heart Rito award, we are now excited to continue our journey and aim to gain our Gold award, Pā-harakeke. This mean that there are going to be some changes to our food and physical activities policies. We hope to have everyone full support.
