Join us for our Autumn Festival as we celebrate the season of rich colours. We gather at the Waipahihi Botanical Gardens at 10am in the lower carpark and take a short walk through some beautiful bush to the Memorial Garden area for a story, a shared lunch and craft activity. Everyone is welcome. Give the kindergarten a call 07 378 8042 for more information or head to our facebook page.

Festivals involve the whole community and are a ceremonial rite rather than a performance, and are usually followed by a shared meal and time for the Community celebration.
