SNUGGLEPOT AND CUDDLEPIE CEN­TE­NARY EARLY YEARS LIT­ER­ACY CEL­E­BRA­TION

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

The Har­vey Early Years Net­work held a Snugglepot and Cuddlepie Cen­te­nary cel­e­bra­tion on Thurs­day 15th Novem­ber at Stir­ling Cot­tage Gar­dens. The weather was per­fect and the gar­dens were stun­ning for this com­mu­nity event at­tended by 200 chil­dren aged 0-6 years. The theme for this year was lit­er­acy, en­cour­ag­ing read­ing with sto­ry­telling and gum­nut ac­tiv­i­ties pro­vided by schools, fam­ily agen­cies and ser­vice providers. Shire of Har­vey Prin­ci­pal Li­brar­ian, Ruth Campbell-Hicks, read Snugglepot and Cuddlepie sto­ries and Ricky Pos­sum en­ter­tained the au­di­ence with bush sto­ries. An Aus­lan In­ter­preter ac­com­pa­nied the story telling for those that may need the ser­vice and to raise aware­ness of dis­abil­ity, ac­cess and in­clu­sion. The Shire of Har­vey also pro­vided fresh fruit and sun­screen for at­ten­dees.
