Children on show
FAMILIES made the most of Saturday’s sunshine at the 2015 Children’s Expo at Wonthaggi.
Held at the State Coal Mine, children and parents enjoyed a day of fun activities hosted by Bass Coast Health in association with community organisations.
The event showcased the many activities available for children in the shire.
Coordinator Trish Scanlon said the event, now in its fifth year, started when a young mum wanted an activity day for her children.
“Services across Bass Coast have since been drawn in and it has grown immensely,” she said.
Local entertainers busked on site while families participated in song, dance and drumming workshops throughout the day.
Scouts Victoria provided an abseiling wall for brave young adventurers while a magician performed fire throwing acts to an impressed audience.
Community groups provided informative stalls with children’s activities to benefit the whole family. Bass Coast Health, speech pathologists, maternal services and Landcare were among those present.
