Highland Grove Preschool’s “Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea”

  • By: Highland Grove

Highland Grove Preschool is a long-term supporter of ‘Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea’, having raised funds for The Cancer Council for over 20 years.

In May this year, we were delighted to provide a week where grandparents and special visitors could join us to raise over $500. The Morning Teas ran over 3 days, May 25th, 26th and 27th, with up to 70 people attending each day.

The event begins with the visitors joining us for the children’s Group Time, where we sing many of our favourite songs, read a story and share in a dance.

We then move to our garden for scones cooked by our Centre Director and pikelets which are cooked by the 4-5 year olds and their teachers that morning.

The visitors stay and play in our garden for the next hour, and the generations mixing together in this way is always wonderful. The feedback received from families is that this is always a favourite preschool event.
