Operation Christmas Child

This year Noah’s Ark will be participating in Operation Christmas Child!

Our families and members from the community will be donating shoeboxes filled with gifts to children in need all around the world. This is a fantastic opportunity  to share the good news of Gospel and teach our children about giving! Below is a short 30 second video explaining Operation Christmas Child.  

Noah’s Ark will be teaming up with Coast Community Church for this outreach. Our last day to drop off the Christmas shoeboxes will be on the 26th October because we want to make sure all the children receive their presents by Christmas! 

You can fill your shoeboxes with simple gifts, it could be something to wear, something to play with, something of school, something to love or something for personal hygiene.  If you are having trouble with ideas on what to fill the shoebox with watch the video below. 

 

If this is something that you are interested in being apart of please contact us using the details below because we will be able to give you a starter pack.

Our Visit to the Local Nursing Home

The Rainbow children at Noah’s Ark have loved visiting the local nursing home in our Community. Once a month on a Tuesday the Rainbow children set off on an adventure in our Noah’s Ark bus.  I absolutely love hearing all about the Rainbow’s adventurers.

This week the children interacted so beautifully with the elderly. They treated everyone with respect and care as they played a variety of games and completed lovely crafts together.

Our visits  to the nursing home is such a wonderful way to connect with our local community. We love having the opportunity for the children to step out into the community and see beyond the preschools walls.

Watching the children form friendships with each of the residents and carers is lovely. We are so proud that our children are demonstrating all of our values here at Noah’s Ark. 

We look forward to continue our trips to the nursing home, the children can not wait until there next visit!  

Family Testimonies about our nursing home visits:

Noah’s Ark Church Service

For the past month the children have been practicing every day for the Noah’s Ark Church Service. Parents were saying that the children would be going home singing all of the songs so it was wonderful to see such a wonderful outcome on Sunday. 

The children jumped up on stage and sung all the songs with such confidence! 

A huge thank you to all of the families who came along to watch this beautiful performance.

Another thank you to Berkeley Vale Church of Christ and all of your wonderful volunteers who hosted the preschool.

Last but not least a massive thank you to the beautiful children of Noah’s Ark,  you each performed the songs beautifully!

Supporting The Leukaemia Foundation

This week at Noah’s Ark, all of our children from the Star and Rainbow Room participating in Funky Hair week by supporting the Leukaemia Foundation!

The children all had their hair created in such funky ways! A huge thank you to all the families who got involved and another huge thank you to Miss Beccy, Miss Kate and Miss Katrina, who knew that we had our very own Funky hair stylists at Noah’s Ark?! 

The educators were able to sit down with the children and explain why we are participating and supporting Funky Hair Week. The children showed that they enjoyed supporting this community event by showing a willingness to participate in making their hair ‘funky’. The children are showing that they are connecting with and contributing to the world around them. Being one of the 150,000 people involved in Funky hair week was a wonderful feeling!  

Together we raised $43.70! This donation will go towards helping the Leukaemia Foundation give Australian families the emotional and practical support they need to beat blood cancer and fund vital research so more people survive leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders.

I want to thank all the families for your gold coin donation! Every donation counts.

Cleaning up Australia Day 2017

Clean Up Australia Day!

Today we ventured out into the community to clean up Kurraba Oval.

The children had a fantastic time understanding and respecting our land that God has given us.

During this experience our Noah’s Ark friends achieved many outcomes shown in the Early Years Learning Framework, especially Outcome 2- Children are connected with and contribute to their world.

Great job Rainbows and Stars
