Children’s week (22nd to 26th October) celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities. Children’s week is supported by the Australian Government of Education and Training. A diverse range of events and activities are organized at National, State and Local levels, focusing on the wider community of children, their needs and achievements.
In the last week of May, our children celebrated the Reconciliation Day Australia. We created special hand print Sorry poster and increased the Australian Aboriginal Culture’s awareness with activities for children, such as puzzles, memory matching game, role play area, listening and dancing to Aboriginal music and songs, and special dream time story reading. For the older children, they discussed further and learnt more about our Indigenous History. Click HERE for photos
We participated in learning about ANZAC Day and what is the meaning behind the important day in the Australian Calendar.
As Easter approached, we began learning about the celebration of Easter and sparking children’s interest through a variety of fun and exciting activities, such as wooden egg memory game, egg scoop Easter activity and face painting for our Easter Disco party. They made Pom Pom Easter egg painting, bunny craft with footprint ears and carrot footprints to develop their creative skills. The dramatic play area was quite popular as the children loved participating in dressing up in the Easter Bunny clothes and Bunny headbands. Click HERE for photos
On April 18th, we held our first Easter Disco. We would like to thank all our amazing families who attended the evening. It was a great success and all the children enjoyed dancing, spending time together and having a visit from the Easter Bunny. We raised $115 in total, and the money will go to towards our new outdoor furniture that we are saving to purchase. Click HERE for photos
