Children's Week October 23-31

Children's Week celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.

Thousands of children and their families around the country are involved in activities and events during "The Week" through the participation of schools, playgroups, childcare, kindergartens, cultural groups, libraries, departments and community groups. and Yarra Plenty regional Library and associated councils are no exception.

A visit to Watsonia Library will show you that the writing and colouring skills of the children in the area are second to none. In the writing competition children, of primary school age, were asked to submit a handwritten story with the theme, 'What make a safe and happy place'. This was organised by Banyule council. Children put in great stories, in their best handwriting, and the winners were awarded a bike helmet as well as Smiggle goodies.

Also, as part of the week, there was a visiting cartoonist, Brett Cardwell
to show the kids how easy it is to draw fun cartoons.

Story time has been enjoyed by many at various shopping centres around the region as well as Teddy Bear picnics and train rides.

What a great week it's been (so far) to celebrate being a child.
