KU Moss Vale Children's Centre has celebrated the 125th anniversary of KU Children’s Services (KU).

The centre recognised the special milestone by collecting 125 water bottles to recycle at their local Return and Earn recycling centre and by donating the money earned to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

“Before we delivered the bottles to the Return and Earn recycling centre, we wanted to involve the children in a project involving the bottles and to celebrate KU’s 125th anniversary,” said KU Moss Vale Director, Carolyn Boese.

“Over a couple of weeks, the children enjoyed filling the bottles with red, blue, yellow and green coloured water – the four colours of the KU logo. We then reused the coloured water for the plants in our playground before recycling the bottles at our local Return and Earn recycling centre.”

The theme of the 125 years celebration was ‘making a difference through 125 years of social impact and early education’.

“We all came together as a centre to commemorate 125 years since KU was established and early childhood education in Australia began. It was also an opportunity to mark 125 years of social impact and making a difference to the lives of children and families,” said Carolyn.

“We celebrated the day with the children wearing KU tattoos on their hands and being splashed with colourful powdered paint. We also arranged the water bottles in the shape of the KU logo and gathered around the sandpit for an aerial photo. The children and staff delighted in sharing this special celebration together.”
