Ride On Aeroplanes


A local Whanganui chap makes these amazing ride-on wooden aeroplanes. They are extremely sturdy and suitable for all young children and can be painted in different colours.


Charmika has purchased one for Barsanti - they absolutely love it - the children were on it all Friday afternoon!

They are priced at $280 and very well made and durable.

Please note that the Reliever Network Meeting for Whanganui is NOT the 17th March but the 25th March - apologies for any confusion caused.
Art Work Wanted
A reminder to get your children's artwork in to the office for the AOS curation by THIS FRIDAY (Monday at the absolute latest).  Please also remember to put the kindergarten and child's name on the back so that we can return it in the future.  Curation will be done by: Lesley Stead, Mike Marsh and Lysha Brennon - all of whom are participating in the Artists Open Studios and/or Whanganui Walls.  Watch for coverage in the paper!
