We were very fortunate to have a visit from Craig Smith author of the Wonkey Donkey. Craig Smith is an APRA children award winning, full time Musician/Author and has had four successful albums. Our children were so excited for this visit and had been practising and reading his songs and books for week beforehand.

We invited our sister centre BestStart Pharazyn Street to join us for a concert full of laughs and entertainment. Being school holidays, it was a great chance for family and friends to join us for this event.  

Craig entertained us with his puppets for each of his song books which some very brave volunteers were happy to move around the room. We were treated to a visit from Kaha the Kea who flew around the room and gave all the children high fives- great work kaha! This interactive show was fun and full of children and parents laughing, dancing and singing joining in and being part of it!

What an awesome experience the tamariki and whanau had- thank you Craig Smith for joining us.
