KU 125 year celebrations go off with a colourful bang in Moss Vale
Children and staff at KU Moss Vale Children’s Centre got colourful and creative to celebrate the 125th anniversary of KU Children’s Services (KU).
“We all came together as a centre to commemorate 125 years since KU was established and early childhood education in Australia began,” KU Moss Vale director Carolyn Boese told local publication Southern Highland News.
KU was the first provider of early childhood education and care in Australia. In 2021, the provider is celebrating 125 years of social impact and making a difference to the lives of children and families.
“We celebrated the day with the children wearing KU tattoos on their hands and being splashed with colourful powdered paint,” Ms Boese.
The centre also donated money from 125 recycled water bottles from their local Return and Earn centre to the Royal Flying Doctor Service for the occasion.
“Before we delivered the bottles to the Return and Earn recycling centre, we wanted to involve the children in a project involving the bottles,” Ms Boese continued.
The children, she explained, enjoyed filling the bottles with red, blue, yellow and green coloured water – the four colours of the KU logo.
“We also arranged the water bottles in the shape of the KU logo and gathered around the sandpit for an aerial photo, something which delighted the children.
