Rain fails to dampen kids’ fun

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

IT WAS a case of singing in the rain at Moss­man Show­grounds yes­ter­day as Moss­man and Port Dou­glas community play groups joined to­gether for a morn­ing of fun to cel­e­brate Chil­dren’s Week.

The wet weather cer­tainly didn’t dampen the spir­its of the young preschool­ers as they splashed in the pud­dles, danced in the rain and took part in games, ac­tiv­i­ties and en­ter­tain­ment by lo­cals Bree and the Bop­stars.

Chil­dren’s Week aim to fo­cus the at­ten­tion of the wider community on chil­dren, their needs and achieve­ments, and well as cel­e­brat­ing the right of chil­dren to en­joy child­hood.

The morn­ing, hosted by Moss­man Community Play­group, at­tracted a large crowd of mums, dad and bubs, to en­joy face-paint­ing, slip and slide, bouncy cas­tle, games and more.

“It’s great for both play­groups to come to­gether, and to show what we do,” Play­group co- or­di­na­tor Am­ber Dol­phin said.

“We fundraise throughout the year so that we can take the kids on ex­cur­sions, and or­gan­ise events for them such as this.

“We’re al­ways look­ing for new mem­bers to join, and for any par­ents who are will­ing to get in­volved with the com­mit­tee.”

The Moss­man Community Play­group meets weekly on Wed­nes­days be­tween 9.30am - 11.30am.

For more in­for­ma­tion on join­ing the play­group contact Am­ber on 4098 2005.
