Kindy kids give back to community with baking

SHARE

The kids of Edna McCulloch Kindergarten have baked up a storm to create some tasty truffles and a gingerbread house.

The kindergarten has been working with the House of Breakthrough Church to distribute the soups, scones and muffins they have been baking throughout the year.

On Tuesday, their latest masterpieces, a gingerbread house and some truffles, were given to an “overwhelmed” and “very happy” Rona Edwards.

House of Breakthrough outreach co-ordinator Sue George said it was great for the children to get to see where some of the food they had been baking went.

In the process, they had made someone’s Christmas, she said.

Edna McCulloch teacher Kim Kennedy said it had been a “real journey” for the children learning to bake and giving back to their community.

“To actually say ‘I’m going to give that chocolate cookie up for someone else’ is a bit of a struggle.”

It was important to give back to the community though, and the children were embracing it, she said.

“Charity begins at home.”
