Nominations for Chairperson

Kia Ora beautiful preschool whanau and community, 

It is with sadness that we inform you that our lovely Chairperson Kristen Calder has resigned from her position on the Preschool Management Committee.  Kristen has been so committed to our preschool and this has been a really hard decision for her to make, but she feels it is best for her to hand the reigns over.  The teachers and Committee thank her for all her hard work and dedication.

We are calling for nominations for a new Chairperson.  If you would like to nominate anyone from our community who is passionate about play based learning, has a heart for children and our community please add them to the list on the preschool blackboard before Thursday 18th June.  Voting will be held at a special Committee Meeting 7pm Thursday 18th June.

Whangia ka tupu, ka puawai - That which is nurtured, blossoms and grows
