It was time for us to fill our kettles, bake cakes and get the tea trolly ready for our family, colleagues and friends together, and help raise vital funds for the Cancer Council!
Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is one of Cancer Council’s most popular fundraising event and the largest, most successful event of its kind in Australia. 1 in 2 Australians are diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85.
All of the donations made across the country go towards helping your local Cancer Council achieve it’s mission of a cancer free future.
Last year, with Australia's help the Council raised an amazing $11.9 million, and in 2018, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is celebrating 25 years, and they’re hoping to raise more than ever. Every cup of tea you serve helps Cancer Council to fund research, support services, prevention programs and advocacy.
Here's some pics of our Morning Tea celebrations below.
As well on this day, in the afternoon we held a Teddy Bears Picnic. In the lead up to this exciting event, the children were involved in a number of activities relating to bears. These activities linked directly across the learning areas within the Australian Curriculum and the Early Years Learning framework. The children sang songs, completed crafts and cooking, rehearsed nursery rhymes, played games and looked at the habitat and life of bears in the environment.
The picnic was a very successful community event, where all parents, caregivers and younger siblings were invited to attend. The Early Childhood teachers strongly encourage positive relationships between caregivers and educators and therefore this was a brilliant opportunity to get to know families.
Thank you to all involved and we look forward to our next community event in Term 2!
