10th birthday party – from singing toddlers to musical tweens …

We had such a fun Saturday afternoon!  We celebrated Wriggle and Rhyme’s 10th birthday with a special party in Fish Hoek, for our team and their families.

Also at the party were a group of “VIP children” who had been part of the first classes 10 years ago.  The birthday party included a special music concert, performed by these blossoming musicians.

A happy reunion!

It was such a happy reunion!  These children were around 18 months old when they joined the very first classes with W&R Founder, Kirsty Savides, at her home in Fish Hoek 10 years ago.  This means that they are now all between 10-12 years old.  Each child received a goodie bag and certificate as part of the celebration!

It is such a privilege to have played a small part in their musical journey so far.  Music has such an important part to play in children’s development, so it’s thrilling that so many of these children have continued learning to play an instrument.

Happy birthday Wriggle and Rhyme!

No birthday party would be complete without a birthday cake … our 10th birthday cake had two delicious layers of chocolate and vanilla and was topped with stars, sparklers and the W&R birthday party worm, complete with fondant balloons!

It was also an opportunity to show thanks and appreciation for the fantastic W&R team who have worked passionately this year to present their baby, toddler and pre-school classes to children across Cape Town.

 

Our 10th birthday celebrations continue, so watch this space!
