Fun activities for Children’s Week
Several children took advantage of the fun activities on offer at Baw Baw Shire Council’s annual Children’s Week Expo.
A steady stream of families filtered through the gate for the three-hour event at Council’s Family and Children’s Services building last week.
Along with the children’s activities, the event also allowed parents and guardians to catch up on local services on offer and relevant information.
Council staff were on hand from kindergarten, Family Day Care and Maternal and Child Health teams to answer any questions about their service areas. Parents also had access to information about immunisation sessions, key ages and stages and maternal and child health visits.
Activities for the children included face painting, craft activities, story time with West Gippsland libraries, community gardening and outdoor games.
The Expo was hosted by Baw Baw Shire Council and supported by the Federal government’s Department of Education and Training.
