Fun Children’s Day!

On Sunday the 28th of October, Challenge hosted an afternoon of fun and games for the children of our friends and whanau. Two of our Youth Volunteer Leaders got the barbecue going in trying windy conditions as all the little ones squeezed into the front room to play a few games.

After karakia in Spanish, Maori and English we shared lunch together. Then the Games continued: the younger children kept on playing; pin the tail on the donkey, egg and spoon race, duck, duck goose, fruit salad and more. Duck, duck goose proved to be a timeless favourite no matter how old you are!

Although the weather was less than ideal everyone still made the most of it. It is so great to be able to put something on for the children and parents in our community. It was awesome to welcome our Colombian families from Porirua as well as our nearby Johnsonville families and friends.

It was a great whanau day…thanks to all who helped and made it such a success.
