Kindergarten Students Community Link

Campbell Primary School Kindergarten students have become Pen Pals with Joseph Banks Aged Care Facility Residents.

The Kindergarten students returning in Week 1 of Term 3 were invited to make a rainbow handprint that could be used to make a larger rainbow shape with words to describe their knowledge of healthcare community workers keeping people safe. These were placed in a classroom window facing out to the Comrie Rd carpark.
They also made one to send to the workers and residents at the local Joseph Banks Aged Care Facility in Canning Vale so that their days can be brightened up by our messages.

The students were delighted to receive the reply from Joseph Banks below.
It is with pleasure our Kindy classrooms display the response from Joseph Banks. We thank them for their enthusiastic and colourful reply. It has motivated our dialogue with the Administrator of Activity Therapy to continue the pen pal scenario and maintain communication with their residents on a regular basis. This provides our Kindergarten students a meaningful opportunity to engage with older community members.

Joseph Banks sent the message below to their residents’ families, in response to receiving the rainbow from our Kindergarten students.

“We have received a beautiful piece of art work from Campbell Primary School Kindy which is displayed at the front door, in reply and to continue with our program of community engagement our craft group is making a thank you sign to send back to our friends at the Kindy.”
