Heroes and halos: Kids in Child, Youth and Family care
from Grey Lynn attended a Christmas party at Auckland
Zoo last month. The event is arranged and sponsored by
specialist recruitment and HR services company
Randstad. The theme of the day was ''heroes and halos''
and many adults and children dressed in costume. All the
kids and caregivers had their zoo entry fee paid for, as well
as snack bags, lunch, drinks and icecreams provided.
Santa was also on hand to give each child personalised
Christmas presents which were generously donated by
various companies. Pictured are CYF social worker
Malcolm Peak and children enjoying the Christmas party
at the zoo.
Healthy hearts: Youngsters from early
childhood centre ABC Grey Lynn are
celebrating being awarded a Gold
Healthy Heart Award. The Heart
Foundation's Healthy Heart Award is a
curriculum-linked programme that
encourages early childhood centres to
promote healthy eating and active
movement to the under-fives and their
families. The programme provides early
childhood centre staff with nutrition and
active movement information, planning
tools and curriculum guides.

service, brigade and church involvement, two
initiative tasks, an assignment and attending a
national assessment weekend. Open to young
women aged 15 to 25, it is an international
award of the highest merit.
Buzz about bees: Left, students from
Waterview Primary School had a real hands-
on learning experience with honeybees at the
end of last year. Three classes of children
visited the Auckland Beekeepers Club as
part of a project to teach New Zealanders
about the importance of bees. Club member
Bruce Wallace organised the visit after
noticing how fearful many people, especially
children, were of insects, even beneficial
ones like bees. Anyone interested in learning
about beekeeping can visit the Auckland
Beekeepers Club on one of its field days on
the second Saturday of each month from
11am on the Unitec Campus in Mt Albert. Go
