Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

JULATTEN State School and Sun­bird Chil­dren’s Cen­tre hosted an Un­der 8s morn­ing last Wed­nes­day. Un­der 8s theme for this year is Coun­try to Coast, with chil­dren in­vited to wear fancy dress to the cel­e­bra­tion.

Stu­dents along with other young­sters en­joyed a fan­tas­tic morn­ing of out­door play with an ob­sta­cle course, bub­ble ma­chine, sand toys, fish­ing, paint­ing, goop and mask mak­ing. Chil­dren loved the face paint­ing, hay bale horse rides, fairy gar­den and visit by Julatten Ru­ral Fire Brigade.

Julatten State School prin­ci­pal, Mrs Gaye Love­lock, said the suc­cess of the morn­ing could be judged by the smiles on chil­dren’s faces. She said Un­der 8s al­lows chil­dren to learn through play and in­ter­ac­tion, how­ever the morn­ing was also the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for Early Child­hood Educators to work col­lab­o­ra­tively and build pos­i­tive part­ner­ships with fam­i­lies and the com­mu­nity.

Chil­dren at Port Dou­glas State School also joined in on the fun last Tues­day. Chil­dren played footy, got cre­ative with arts and crafts and en­joyed a ride on the Lil Squirt buggy.
