September 2017 Recipients
Papamoa Playcentre in the Bay of Plenty, received $1,449 to replace the playcentre’s oven.
The current oven at the playcentre is over 20 years old and is starting to pose a safety risk to staff and children.
The process of cooking is an essential part of the playcentre’s education, where the children help with the baking. This helps teach them about literacy, numeracy, science and collaboration.
