The ELP Porirua “Mums ‘n’ Tots” class visits the Cannons Creek Library once a month. This helps the Mums with their reading in English, their confidence in using the library and enables them to take their children along, to learn crafts, and to encourage reading to children as a daily activity.
Gina, from Cannons Creek Library, has been very welcoming. She has shared a story or three, sung songs with the group and always had fun activities planned. During their visits the group always welcomes ideas for keeping children busy and engaged; they learnt how to make little mice using old magazines; they coloured in some pictures, they made beautiful birds a lovely crafty idea that inspired us
Unfortunately, Gina is leaving, heading back to her home town of Dunedin to be near her family. The students will miss Gina greatly and showed their appreciation by making cards in class and going on a visit to the library to present these along with a speech of appreciation from Paw Chit.
