2018 HIPPY families celebrate

The end of 2018 saw the Parakai School Hall full of excited children and their families as they celebrated their achievements as participants of the HIPPY (Home Interaction Programme for parents and Youngsters) programme.
Parents and children were presented with certificates with the children also receiving gift bags filled with books and goodies. The community has been very supportive with donations from the Lions Club of Helensville and Paper Plus Helensville being much appreciated. The evening was a huge success with families enjoying supper and an evening together in the Parakai School playground.
The special graduates were the children who completed the full two year/sixty week programme working on the fun interactive activities with their parents. These children have made a great start to school and have all of the skills and confidence to enjoy their learning journey.
