What a day the Gunnedah Preschool staff had today! Our day consisted of a team bonding session that was organised into the format of popular TV show ‘Survivor’. The staff were split into 3 teams and used their archery skills to pop balloons which would later determine how many lives each team started with. Following archery, the three teams competed against each other in a variety of fun, problem-solving activities. After these games and a quick bite to eat, we headed down to the lake for some kayaking to finish up the day. There’ll be some sore muscles tomorrow no doubt!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Hi everyone! Count down is on for the end of Term and what a great Term we have had. We have noticed the last two weeks that some of the children have been standing close to the gate where parents are coming in and out.
