Hunting for kindy memorabilia

Posted: 7am 10 Jul 2021

Kippa-Ring Kindergarten and Preschool is gearing up to celebrate its 50th birthday in September.

With a family fun day planned, the kindy is hunting for memories and memorabilia to mark the occasion.

Director Beth Kerr says while there are plenty of photos and information from more recent years, she’s searching for earlier material.

“We don’t seem to have much information about the ’80s and ’90s,” Beth says.

“We’re looking for stories, photos and artwork.”

Still supporting children

Beth says much has changed since the kindy opened in the 1970s, but its philosophy of supporting children and their families has not.

“The parents saw a need for a kindy in the area when it opened and we still run as an affiliate with a volunteer parent committee and value their input.

“We would love to be able to show our full story and want families that have been here to come and see the changes and the growth.”

The family fun day in September will feature activities for children, face painting, a display of memorabilia and an exhibition of children’s art.
