Mana Montessori held a very successful Open Day and Wheelathon on Saturday 2 March. There was a cupcake decorating stall, bouncy castle, treasure hunt, a guess-the-weight-of-the-school-rabbit competition, face painting, bike races and much more to entertain children and their families. We were delighted to have other members of the wider community visit us for the day.
The highlight of the day’s events was the Official Opening of our wonderful new playground by the Mayor of Porirua, Nick Leggett. The new outdoor area provides lots of fun and challenges for the children and enables them to connect more directly with nature. After cutting the ribbon to declare the playground open, the Mayor could not resist the temptation to throw himself down our slide!
