Children go mad for hats at tea
Hats were all the rage at the Karratha library last Thursday when it took part in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
A Mad Hatter party theme had children and adults alike dressed up in their most weird and wonderful hats and the library was decorated with Alice in Wonderland props on loan from the St Luke’s College drama department.
The library held a joint event in combination with National Simultaneous Storytime and staff developed the theme from this year’s chosen books, which were all hat-related.
The story time session was a hit, with the almost 80 children who attended, and afterwards a full range of morning tea options were on offer for a gold coin donation.
The library also put on a puppet show which challenged children to “guess that hat” through riddles, and there were goody bags for every child.
All funds raised will go towards the Cancer Council.
The Dampier Community Association also held an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea at the Dampier Community Hall where there were plenty of home-made treats on offer.
