Last Wednesday I was pleased to attend the Opening Day of the McDougall Park Community Kindergarten.
As the number of community kindergartens operating in Western Australia has been declining in recent years, South Perth are very privileged to have such a fantastic facility with exceptional staff operating within our local area. The Community Kindergarten is celebrating the milestone of 50 years of operation within the local community next year.
McDougall Park Community Kindergarten has recently benefited from a new kitchen, toilets and hand basins courtesy of a $30,000 Lotterywest grant and fundraising by the Kindy community.
As the local Member for South Perth, John McGrath MLA was invited to attend the official opening last Wednesday and cut the ribbon with the 2011 Kindy President.
“I was very pleased to attend and meet some of the Kindy parents. I also congratulate the hard-working Kindy committee for providing such a wonderful service for the local community”, said Mr McGrath.
