Every year Ride Avenue Preschool farewells many families who have been a part of the preschool for many years and who have made lasting contributions and memories.

However, two people deserve a special mention for their contribution.

Mary and Gil Cooke started out as kinder parents. Mary also worked from 1988 to 1999 as a much-loved assistant at Ride Ave, sharing those special ‘Cookie’ cuddles.

For the past 16 years Mary and Gil have been active grandparents of 15 grandchildren who have been part of the preschool family.

The Cookes’ involvement with the kinder is greatly appreciated; they have helped to create the wonderful preschool that exists today.
