The children at Community Kindy Portage Rd were all very excited to have Kori the penguin and Pale come and visit us from the Otahuhu swimming pools. We gathered together to learn all about water safety, the importance of wearing life jackets when on a boat and about swimming between the flags when we are at the beach.

Our tamariki showed that they already had a lot of prior knowledge about this as they were very quick to call out the answers when Pale questioned them. The children were able to make connections with Pale as they have seen her before at swimming lessons or while visiting the pools. This was a great learning experience and the children hugged Kori to say thank you for coming to visit our Kindy.
