Broadbeach Kindergarten’s Gowrie Gala!

On September 19 2014 Broadbeach Kindergarten began it’s new affiliation with The Gowrie Queensland. After a long partnership with C&K the decision was made to move in a new direction and committee and staff felt that The Gowrie Queensland would be a better fit for our kindergarten and it’s children, families and staff. It was with great excitement that we started our new alliance with a magnificent and fun filled Gowrie Gala! Families – past, present and future – were invited to attend to celebrate this momentous occasion with us. The children of 2014 performed three spectacular songs for our families entertainment, The Queensland Minister for Education, Training and Employment – Mr John-Paul Langbroek officiated and the lovely Mrs Jane Bourne – CEO of The Gowrie attended to welcome us into the Gowrie family. Much fun was had by all with everyone enjoying the free entertainment, food and drinks. We were entertained by the wonderful Greg Ware – The Idle Australian, children jumped on the jumping castle, there was face painting and lucky dips, sausage sizzles and poppers, cake stalls and raffles. Children could hardly believe their eyes as their kindy was transformed into a magical wonderland! We all look forward to a long and positive relationship with The Gowrie Queensland and are very proud to become a Lady Gowrie Community Kindergarten.
