Halls are decked with decorations

IT'S Christmas time at Goodstart Toormina and the fairies and elves have visited the centre and decked it out for the festive season.

Decorating the Goodstart Toormina centre to keep the magic of childhood alive and thriving has been a long standing tradition with community involvement.

Using their school readiness skills, arts, crafts, literacy skills and science exploration, the kids at the centre have all contributed to the decorating.

"Our children have been using skills to write letters to Santa,” said Jodi Bentley, Goodstart Toormina administration assistant.

"They have used their numeracy skills to count up the days until Santa comes and to work out how many presents he needs to bring.

"Science exploration has helped the children learn how Santa navigates his travels around the world and Social Science has encouraged discovery of festive practices of other cultures around the world.

With their arts and crafts skills, the kids have produced Christmas decorations to hang around the centre.
