Shoalhaven City Council is celebrating Children’s Week from 19-28 October with 14 Council supported events being held across the region.
Mayor, Amanda Findley, is encouraging children, parents and carers to enjoy the upcoming Children’s Week events. “Children’s week is a national program recognising the talents, skills and achievements of the youngest residents in the Shoalhaven. It is a time to learn, play and enjoy.”
“Council plays an important role in hosting a range of events and experiences for the young and young at heart.”
“From the Drop-in Lego challenge, games afternoons, movies and Spooky Storytime at the Libraries held during the week, to Paint the Town REaD Black and Yellow - Aggies 1st Birthday at the Nowra Showground Pavilion on Monday, 22 October from 11 am to 1 pm, there is something to suit all ages.
“Celebrations like this offer a great opportunity for families to enjoy great educational experiences in our local area.”
“The theme of Children’s Week this year is to encourage learning and playing with many of the events aiming to build on creativity, education, flexibility and play.”
In conjunction with Children’s Week, Water Week will also be celebrated. As the Shoalhaven has just launched Level 1 Water Restrictions, a “Tap and Win” competition for schools is being held. Council and Shoalhaven Water are inviting school classes to think about being water-wise and to enter the competition by making a video, song, poem, podcast or webpage on how the Shoalhaven can be more water-wise.
Open to primary and high schools in the Shoalhaven Local Government Area, classes of all ages are encouraged to be creative to share creatively how we can all save water. Entries must be less than one minute and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org if under 10 MB with a Subject Line – Tap and Win Competition. Video files must be on a disc or USB and can be sent to Shoalhaven City Council, PO Box 42, Nowra NSW 2541. Teacher resources are also available on the Shoalhaven Water website.
