Dear Parents,

You may be aware that the much-loved Unley Kindy Director, Ann Rieger is retiring at the end of this year after more than a decade of leadership.  Her professionalism, organisation and warmth has been appreciated by many and we wanted to give the community a chance to farewell her. The following activities have been planned and you are welcome to partake in one or all of them.

Special assembly

Many children who have been at Unley Kindergarten are now at Unley Primary School, so we have jointly arranged for a special farewell at the Unley Primary School Assembly on Thursday 29 November at 2.15pm.  Children who attend the kindy have been invited to join us here the Sports Arts Centre.

Contribution to a gift

A gift that recognises her contribution to our community will be purchased and if you would like to contribute to her gift, you can do so by using the TryBooking link below.

There is an option of a non-attendance ticket if unable to attend the assembly but still would like to make a donation.


Messages of thanks

Lastly, we are creating messages for Ann from past and present Unley Kindy families which we will collate into a printed book. Your message only needs to be a few sentences (or even just one). Please include all of your family names and the year your child/children attended at the end of your note. You are also welcome to include photos (old and new).

Annie Howard is collecting these messages via email.

This thank you book along with her gift will be presented to her at the special assembly on Thursday 29 November.  If you could please make your contribution or send your message by Friday 23 November this should give the organisers plenty of time to get the book and gift arranged. If you are in touch with families not at Unley Primary or Unley Kindy anymore you are more than welcome to share the details for the gifts with them.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us.

Kind regards,

Anita and Ceinwen (on behalf of the Unley Kindergarten Governing Council)
