Purple Cake Day

On Friday 8th March, we dressed up in purple in support of the fundraising event to raise money which goes towards children who are less fortunate in our country.

Chrissy held a special morning mat-time to talk to the children about what Purple Cake day is all about.  The children and teachers all joined in on the conversation and sharing our ideas, knowledge and feelings about how lucky we are compared to some children in the world who are unable to have an education. The children were amazed that some children do not have pens, felts, crayons, paper and toys to play with.
This was a good opportunity for the children to gain a better understanding about the diversity of the world they live in and that we as a community can do something to support and contribute to help their situation. 

Chrissy showed a stick figure person representing the sadness of a child who does not have an education and other basic life necessities.   I must say the mat-time was very quiet as all the children were very engaged in listening to the story behind this child's sadness.

On the other side was a child who after having received our donation, was able to go to school, have pens and paper and learn, just like we do at kindergarten and school.

Thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to the Purple Cake Day Fundraising Event.
Nothing but purple joy!!
