Together the tamariki and team from First Steps Waiuku  collected 128 pairs of PJ’s in June!

Most of our families donated at least one pair of jammies to this amazing cause. We’ve had both teachers and families that have had their children in Kidz First so this really hit home as a great fundraiser for our centre. At First Steps Waiuku, we had a whole week of dressing in our jammies and participating in different activities throughout the week such as a teddies bear picnic, movie days, hot chocolates, baking and much more!

After our dress up week, we took a group of 6 children up to Kidz First where we met with the Jammies in June co-ordinator. We handed over our jammies and the children got to see and hear about the hospital and how it helps sick children. We were also lucky enough to have a tour around the paediatric department of Middlemore Hospital.  It was an amazing experience for the children and teachers.
