Last Friday staff from the Office of the Guardian joined in the celebrations of this year’s national Children’s Day at the Aboriginal Family Support Services’ Connect to Culture Children’s Day event.
Now in its third year, the event, which was held at the Parafield Gardens Recreation Centre, was a great way to celebrate the culture and strength of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and learn about the importance of culture, family and community in their lives.
There were a number of activities for children and adults alike, including weaving, painting, boomerang making, face painting, balloon twisting, jumping castles and live music.
To the delight of the children (and adults), Oog also made a surprise appearance and even busted out a few moves on the dance floor.
Aboriginal Family Support Services Cultural Advisor, Barbara Falla organised the third Connect to Culture event.
