Preschool service raises funds for the Cancer Council as part of Biggest Morning Tea
Highland Grove Preschool in Green Point has once again participated in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, raising over $500 for the Cancer Council, Coast Community News has reported.
The preschool has been a long-term supporter of the fundraiser, holding the event on the premises for over 20 years, except for 2020, when the event was placed on hold as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.
Held over three days, the preschool has the two to three year old room participating in the event from 9 am to 10:30 am, and the two larger rooms, housing children aged between three and five years, hosting between 10:30 am and 12 noon.
Highland Grove Preschool Owner and Director Kylie Wade said the service would often see between 50 and 70 visitors per day during the event.
“The visitors join us for the children’s Group Time, where we sing many of our favourite songs, read a story and share in a dance,” she explained.
“We then move to our garden for scones cooked by our Centre Director and pikelets which are cooked by the four and five year olds with their teachers in the morning.”
Visitors then stay and play in our garden for the next hour, “and the generations mixing together in this way is always wonderful,” Ms Wade concluded.
