A thank you surprise for Anzac Day
AUSTRALIAN soldiers fighting overseas are set to receive care packages from Granville kindergartners.
Kids Choice Granville second in charge Julie-Ann Kirstenfeldt knows all too well how much care packages mean to those in the armed forces - her brother has been in the Royal Australian Air Force for 15 years.
"My mum, sister and I gather stuff up each time he goes over and we send him something," she said.
Julie-Ann said there were a few staff who had family and friends serving overseas and it was timely to get the children involved.
The Granville children packed toiletries, biscuits, lollies and a poppy flower in each parcel destined for overseas.
The dozen packages were sent last week.
"The children from the nursery through to five years did a heap of drawings which were added to the care packs," Ms Kirstenfeldt said.
"On each drawing and painting we wrote 'thank you for your service and your help'.
"During the activity, which we started several weeks ago, we discussed Anzac Day.
"The children would say they are away protecting us."
