Former Echuca Central Kindergarten students are invited to return to mark its 40th anniversary on September 14.
While the kindergarten is older than 40, the day will celebrate its time in the Anstruther St building.
Committee president Kelly Somerville said it was an exciting event in the kindergarten’s history.
‘‘We’re inviting all people, past and present, who have been involved in the kinder whether it be previous students, families, teachers or committee members,’’ she said.
‘‘They are all welcome to come.’’
Those attending will see displays of past kindergarten memorabilia, listen to guest speakers and watch a time capsule being planted.
Kindergarten teacher Maureen Power, who has worked at the kindergarten for 10 years, said the history of the centre had been difficult to find.
‘‘It’s been very difficult to chase up some of the past teachers because obviously they’ve moved away and it’s hard finding out where they are now,’’ she said.
The committee was looking to the future as they plan and raise money for a natural resources area.
Mrs Somerville asked those with memorabilia related to the kindergarten to contact the kinder on 5482
The day runs from 2pm to 4pm.
