As our final ELC parent and child event we decided to have a picnic at Negishi Park. The children loved riding together on the bus; this was the first time for the E1 children and many asked ‘how long will it be’, ‘when will we see the park’, ‘will my mum be there’. Once the bus dropped us of we walked as a group through the park down to the ponds where many parents were waiting. Games were played, mats spread out with picnic food, parents talked, teachers enjoyed a shared lunch, balls were kicked around. It was a lovely time.
