WITH doors closing left, right and centre, Echuca South Community Kindergarten have let the public know their’s are open and ready to spread positivity in this tough time.
The staff and remaining students came together yesterday to create a vibrant message that is now hanging on their front fence.
“At the moment we just need to send out some positive messages to our community and our team came up with this idea,” kindergarten teacher Alex Wheeler said.
“Among all the confusion going on with schools closing and whether kindergartens will remain open, and although it is what it is, we need to spread as much kindness as we can.”
With donated sheet and paint in hand, the staff and their small group of children created a piece that is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
“We wanted the kids to still be able to do something fun and work together on something beautiful,” she said.
“Of course, we took it in turns to ensure we were still practicing social distancing, but it all worked out really well.
“The kids that wanted to contribute did and we were able to make this great artwork for everyone to see.”
And though the future is uncertain for almost everyone, Echuca South will be open until they’re told not to be.
“Although there is a lot that is unknown for us, the Department has said we are to remain open and at this stage we will continue to be open until we hear otherwise,” Ms Wheeler said.
“Our numbers have gone down and we respect the decision of any parent or family that wants to keep their child home, but we’re still open at this stage.”
