MINUTES WITH: Annarose Smith Berhampore resident What would Cook Strait News readers be shocked to know about you? I once had a job which involved walking Sting’s dog.

What would you change about the world? That no child went un-provided for. We don’t choose the lifestyle we’re born into!

What would your super power be and why? The ability to teleport. I’ve been known to spend the majority of my pay on travel so it’d be nice to be able to turn up anywhere in the world I please at the drop of a hat.

What meal do you never get sick of eating? Anything Vietnamese and cooked by my friend Truong’s mum.

High Five celebrates 15 years

Who is your best friend and why? Georgia. We met at a party when we were 16 and have seen each other through every awkward phase since.

What is the best thing in your life right now? Dumplings. I’ve gone dumpling mad.

Who is one person, dead or alive, you would love to have a meal with? My old boss Anna Gail. Aside from a mutual passion for awesome food, she always reminds me what’s great about the world and helps me to re-focus. She also has the best laugh of anyone I know.

A popular Evans Bay day care centre and kindergarten will mark 15 years in business next month. High Five Early Childhood Education Centre, on Evans Bay Parade, will celebrate with a get-together at The Green Man Pub on September 19. Owner and manager Stacey Clyde says High Five Early Childhood Education Centre has stood the test of time because it is quite unique. “We’ve quite a relaxed family environment,” says Stacey, who has worked in early child care for 23 years. “We just love what we do.” One of the best things about High Five is the natural outdoor space which Stacey says is just like a family backyard. A highlight for Stacey during her long career in the industry is having the opportunity to mentor the teachers at

High Five. “It’s the teachers that make the biggest difference to children,” she says. Some of the teachers have been with High Five for eight years. The fact teachers stay with the centre for a long time means children have great continuity of care, Stacey says. She says at High Five she always endeavours to give children a great child hood. “I want them to be children, to play,” Stacey says. “We can provide the freedom to learn.” Stacey says anybody is welcome to celebrate High Five Early Childhood Education Centre’s 15th birthday with the team on September 19. The event will be held at The Green Man Pub on Victoria Street from 7pm, it is $20 a head. PBA
