Kindergartens South Annual General Meeting

Lively and entertaining guest speaker at our Annual General Meeting

We took care of the formal part of the AGM at the start of the evening. It was Lynley Henderson's last AGM as General Manager as she has retired and hands over to Richard Aitken the new General Manager. We thank Lynley for her outstanding work for our Association over the years and welcome Richard on board.

Our guest speaker was John Parsons. John is a leading authority on cyber-safety for children and works throughout NZ with young people helping them stay safe in the digital world. It was very interesting to hear that children from 0 to 2 years should have no screen time including TV. For 3 to 5 years only one hour of screen time and this should be supervised. Look out for John's book "Keeping Your Children Safe Online".

We also farewelled President Prue Halstead and welcomed in the new President, Rebecca McLeod and also a newly elected Board Member, Erin Cross. Congratulations and we look forward to working with you during the year.
