Kindergarten Winter Festival and Lantern Walk

23 July 2020

It was a special and magical time when Big and Little Kindy celebrated their Winter Festival and Lantern Walk at the end of Term 2. Staying back after school, they enjoyed a fire, warm soup and bread, before going to the darkened hall for their Winter Story. Using marionette puppets, music and song, the Kindergarten teachers told the story of a girl journeying to the stars. The hall is lit only by lanterns as the children enter, which are then taken on a magical Lantern Walk around the campus. It was a special moment seeing all the parents and carers waiting with their own glowing lanterns to meet the children at twilight. This would usually be done as a family event, but despite COVID-19 restrictions we still managed to share the magic of MidWinter.
