Last week we enjoyed hosting Parklands Preschool for our inaugural Neighbourhood Week.
This school is also situated on the Mount Penang site, opposite NAISDA, so it was nice to meet and connect with them as neighbours. Our Community team strolled over to pick up our young friends and take them on a different adventure each day.
We visited Kindy and Stages 1-3 across the week and were able to join in on their project-based learning times including nature walks, story time and even a drama presentation!
During the hour-long visit, our preschool neighbours also got to experience the different sporting venues by participating in a physical literacy session. The tennis courts, ‘Wembley’ as it’s affectionately known and the ‘Football Oval’ were both big hits with the kids, playing and learning through activities and games.
We thoroughly enjoyed the week and were encouraged to hear the children couldn’t stop talking about visiting ‘The Football School’.
The Community team will be looking to host more excursions to share the great environment that is reflected at IFTS.
