Chil­dren’s Day full of fun

Cockburn Gazette - - STREETWATCH -

BARK-paint­ing with mud paint and boomerang dec­o­rat­ing were among the ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer in Cock­burn for Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der Chil­dren’s Day.

On Fri­day, Au­gust 4, about 40 chil­dren and their fam­i­lies had the chance to take part in craft ac­tiv­i­ties, en­joy a sausage siz­zle and re­lax at the Len Pack­ham Re­serve in Cool­bellup.

Gary Allen, from Cooby Cares, was among those who at­tended the cel­e­bra­tions.

“It was a re­ally fun, sim­ple, easy­go­ing event. Our daugh­ter (7) re­ally en­joyed the art and it was great to chat with other Cooby lo­cals,” he said.

This year’s theme was Value Our Rights, Re­spect Our Cul­ture, Bring Us Home, which recog­nised the im­por­tance of strong con­nec­tion to fam­ily and cus­toms.
