Paint donation for kindergarten’s Puppet Theatre brings smiles all round.
The Golden Bay Kindergarten was trilled upon receiving a generous donation in 2015 from The Natural Paint Company to paint their Puppet Theatre.
The package they received included a tin of primer and large tin of green paint in the naturally beautiful tone, Spring.
The colour represents the kindergarten’s “green” philosophy and the non-toxic hand-crafted paints created right here in New Zealand fitted perfectly with the centre’s environmental and sustainable principles.
Being the only educational centre in Golden Bay to hold a Silver Enviroschools Award, the kindergarten is not far off winning the Green Gold title and is passionate about nature education and always choosing the best quality environmentally and sustainable options whenever possible.
Children, teachers and parents of the kindergarten worked hard to fundraise the money to pay a local carpenter to build the Puppet Theatre, which was then painted with the natural green tone by a four-year old student and her mother at their home.
The kindergarten are forever grateful to the Natural Paint Company for their well-performing, honest, well-manufactured, quality products which are safer to use for their little people than regular paint, also offering ecologically and socially responsible solutions for our world.
