Pilbara News - - News - Louise Alling­ham

If you went down to Fed­er­a­tion Park last Tues­day, you would have been sure of a big sur­prise as about 130 lo­cal kids and their favourite stuffed friends en­joyed a teddy bears’ pic­nic.

The Oc­to­ber 25 pic­nic was or­gan­ised by the Ex­mouth Early Years Net­work as part of Chil­dren’s Week.

Pre-pri­mary and kinder­garten stu­dents from Ex­mouth Dis­trict High School and chil­dren from the Ber­nice McLeod Childcare cen­tre, Ex­mouth Play­group and reg­u­lars of Ex­mouth Shire’s story time pro­gram at­tended.

Par­ents, chil­dren and ted­dies sang songs, read sto­ries and en­joyed a pic­nic of fruit and teddy bear bis­cuits.

Ex­mouth play­group pres­i­dent Mandy Merlin said it was won­der­ful to see the chil­dren come to­gether and en­joy a fun morn­ing in the park.

The Ex­mouth Early Years Net­work was formed to sup­port young chil­dren and their fam­i­lies to live good lives by build­ing strong fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties.
