HONOLULU (KHNL) -  One week after a fire destroyed much of their school, keiki from Central Union Church reunite with their friends for a day at Bishop Museum.

This was the scene last week at Central Union Church Preschool in Makiki. An early morning fire destroyed much of the 80-year-old building.

"Ah, just panic and sadness seeing those pictures on the TV," said parent Beth Damon.

Parents and teachers try to help these keiki return to a normal routine.

"Yesterday they went to the zoo today it's bishop museum, they have contact with the teachers and their friends and were trying to make it as normal as possible," preschool director Marie Hook said.

Preschoolers walk down Treat street and check out the worlds largest shark.

"This is one of his favorite places, he loves the volcano room and were excited to see the new shark exhibit," Damon said.

As the kids enjoy the day at the museum their teachers are working on temporary classrooms back at Central Union Church.

"The teachers feel a whole lot better being able to have a classroom and have the children come back, they miss them, they really miss them," Hook said.

"They will be together again and continue on for the rest of the school year," Damon said.

They hope classes will resume after the Halloween holiday. A definite treat for these cute sweet keiki.

The Honolulu police department is still investigating the cause of the fire.
