St. Anne Kindergarten Students In Disbelief As Gingerbread Man Runs Away Again!

St. Anne Kindergarten students Owen Moxam, Ava Collette, and Marrisa McNaughton look for clues in hopes of finding their runaway gingerbread cookies.

April 21, 2011 - "Run, run, as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!" This was the phrase the English Early Learning Kindergarten students at St. Anne School in Hanmer had being practicing as they used the story of the "Gingerbread Man" to practice story retelling. A culminating activity was to actually bake their own gingerbread cookies. Imagine their surprise when they discovered that their baked cookies had run away just like the cookie in the story!
An all points bulletin was aired over the school's p.a. system by the Kindergarten children. They then proceeded to design and post lost and found posters. With the entire student body and staff eagerly searching for the fun away cookies, the children received a phone call from Mr. Thomson, an Intermediate teacher within the school. The run away cookies had fled to Mr. Thomson's classroom. When asked why he thought the cookies would run to him, Mr. Thomson was quoted as saying, "Everyone knows I like cookies and I also like to say 'Hello' to the littlest people within our school, so I guess my classroom was the perfect place to go." The Kindergarten children were ecstatic and relieved at the same time. Mr. Thomson received a gingerbread cookie as a reward for helping the students and providing a very happy and yummy ending to this tasty fairy tale mystery!
