Friends and families are invited to focus on the younger generation as Gin Gin Neighbourhood Centre and Gin Gin Child and Family Support Program prepares for the annual Family Frolics Fun Day.
Hosted at Gin Gin State School, in conjunction with its Under-8s Day, the event provides opportunities for families to enjoy each other's company while taking in the importance of children learning in the early years of life.
Other local school groups, members from the local SES, Tirroan Rural Fire Brigade, Gin Gin Police, Walk with Me 4 Autism, Paint the Town READ, Busy Bees Playgroup and Save the Children Playgroup will also be in attendance to take part in the activities.
Community and Cultural Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracy McPhee said through community events, such as Family Frolics, local families would have the opportunity to engage in a variety of activities.
“Family Frolics supports our youngest community members and their families,” Cr McPhee said.
“It is a wonderful event and I encourage all of the community to come along and enjoy the morning together.”
A morning tea of fruit will be provided on the day and children are invited to join in activities from Gymfinity and Wild Gully Play Therapy, facepainting with Facepainting Frivolous Faces or feeding and patting the ponies from Phoenix Acres.
Local families are encouraged to attend the combined events, which includes indoor and outdoor play activities, entertainment and information.
Gin Gin Family Frolics Fun Day is funded by Bundaberg Regional Council and Department of Educations and Training, Office of Early Childhood Education and Care.
