Piwaiwaka Stew

The Fantails
On Saturday the 18th of November the tamariki (and some of the parents) at Fiordland Kindergarten performed the play Piwaiwaka (Fantail) Stew.

The show was a great success and the result of five weeks of hard work by the children, their whanau, the teachers and some amazing volunteers from the community.

Not only was our play a chance for the tamariki to show off their awesome singing and dancing skills, it also taught an important message about the damage introduced species can and are doing to our beautiful Fiordland.

Fiordland Kindergarten endeavours to teach our tamariki to be leaders in caring for our environment and we hope that by learning more about our native fauna by portraying them, we become more empathetic about their plight.

A production like this does not go ahead without some assistance from the wider community, so we would like to use this space to give a big thank you to our musicians: Jane Maxwell, Sandy Scott, Lynley Watson and Jazz Beckett.
Vaughn Filmer, thank you for filming the video so we can watch it for years to come.
To the companies that supported us: Fiordland Nurseries, Fiordland Players, The Events Centre, The Te Anau Club and Sugar Snaps photography a great big thank you for lending us your time and equipment.
And finally, a massive thank you to all of the parents and children who made this production possible.
