In November the staff at Picton Kindergarten taught the children about water safety with the help of parents. KatieMcNabb from Coastguard Boating Education visited them as part of their lessons with some props for the children to explore such as lifejackets, a small boat, rope and oars. half degree 4 free* WORLD CLASS WINE • WORLD CLASS LOCATION WORLD CLASS TRAINING Winemaking demands the very highest standards... r flexible study options it is now studywhile youwork. helor of Viticulture and Winemaking** Diploma in Viticulture and Wine Production ate in Vineyard Practice ENROL NOW nmit.ac.nz/viticulture 0800 422 733 Good job: Picton Kindergarten pupil Archie Campbell shows a knot he tied during a water safety day.
