Our Clever Thinkers have struck up a long distance friendship with a school in Brisbane and were thrilled to recently receive their first letter.
The little ones, our pre-school children ages three and four, made the link with the school as one of our staff has a goddaughter who is a Kindy teacher over there.
We thought it would be great fun for the children to become pen pals and were so excited when the first letter back arrived in the post.
Our Brisbane friends sent us some pictures showing their favourite activities, their lovely classroom and what they love to do in their nursery.
Clever Clogs Bowburn Assistant Manager Jane White said: “In the letter we received there were also some very important news,
“Stick Man had arrived in Australia!
“We think he has got onto an aeroplane to go and see our new friends and they have seen him playing in their playground.
“We’re so happy to have heard from him and we hope he plans on making a return very soon. He’s been all over the place but Australia is definitely the furthest so far.
“We have sent our friends another letter in response to theirs, with the children telling us what they would like to include on it. One child said “I went to see fireworks the other day, did they see any” and another child said
“I think Stick Man has got an aeroplane or helicopter to go on holiday with our friends”.
“We can’t wait to hear back from our new friends Down Under in their next reply.”
