KU Revesby Preschool has celebrated their 50th anniversary of providing quality early childhood education and care to local families by holding a community event recently.
The special event was attended by Member for Banks, the Hon David Coleman MP, Member for East Hills, Wendy Lindsay MP, and children, families and staff from the preschool.
“We had a great time celebrating our 50th anniversary and it was lovely to recognise this special milestone with our preschool and wider community,” said KU Revesby Director, Benjamin Russell.
“Aboriginal Elder Cindy Laws visited to perform a Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony, before we had speeches recognising the importance of our community and the history of our preschool. We then finished with a nice afternoon tea with each other.”
One of the highlights of the event was the opening of the preschool’s time capsule from 1994.
“We were all very excited to open and see what was inside the time capsule. There were photos of children and staff from 1994, a video tape, books, newsletters and magazines, maps of the local area, children’s artworks and more,” said Benjamin.
“The opening of the capsule provided us with a great opportunity to reflect on the history of our preschool and how things have changed over the last 25 years. It has also inspired us to put together our own time capsule this year, to be opened in another 25 years when KU Revesby turns 75.”
KU Revesby provides quality early childhood education for children aged 3 - 5 years and is currently taking enrolments. For more information, contact the Director, Benjamin Russell on 9771 4942.
