This term, in Hummingbee Kindy, we have been busy boat-builders. We began by each making our own sanding block for smoothing our hulls, cabins, masts and paddles. Next we dyed our sails to catch the breeze and, finally, we painted the hulls. Today, with much excitement, we headed down to the Brunswick River, to launch our fleet.
Earlier in the term, we expressed our gratitude for our brave fire fighters by baking them a batch of crunchy buns, and a lovingly made book of drawings with messages composed by each child. We received this letter of thanks from the firies this week…
To all the dear kids at Hummingbee Kindergarten,
Thank you for all the beautiful pictures and support.
Everyone enjoyed the crunchy buns. They gave us all the energy we needed to fight the fires.
We are looking now forward to holidays and camping with our friends and family.
Lots of love and a big thank you from the whole crew at Mullum RFS.

During playtime, our Portuguese-speaking children have been teaching their friends some clapping games in Portuguese; the monkey bars continue to provide challenges and we've been working hard on our garden - fixing pavers and paths, weeding and harvesting.
We enjoyed a beautiful festival with our families, sharing with them the story of Dripple and Dropple and their journey from Mother Cushion Cloud, down to help Bella Billabong find her way to Mother Ocean, where they met many friends. Following our delicious feast we headed off for a treasure hunt in our garden, each child hunting for the little clay bird-feeder they had made, which was filled with kindy treasures for them to carry with them across to Class 1.
We had a lovely time meeting our new Class 1 teacher, Maria, a few weeks ago and the children are so looking forward to all they will learn with her next year.
We wish all of our children and their families a restful and relaxed holiday and a smooth transition to Primary School. Thank you all for our beautiful year together.
