Penrith Council will hold five free events for local children, families and care-givers to enjoy as part of Children’s Week.
Children’s Week is a national celebration to recognise the right of children to enjoy childhood and recognise the important role care-givers, families and community services play in improving the lives of children.
Events will be ‘popping up’ at Colyton Neighbourhood Centre (October 24), Jordan Springs Town Centre (October 24), The Mondo-Westfield Penrith (October 25), North St Marys Neighbourhood Centre (October 26) and Smith Paddock-Thornton Estate (October 27). Children will be delighted by the variety of activities on offer including Rooby (the kanga) Roo meet and greet, animal farm, Mobile Playvan, ball pit and putt putt golf.
Mayor John Thain said while kids are busy enjoying themselves, parents and care-givers can learn more about Penrith’s great local services from a variety of community info stalls.
“As a council we are committed to delivering events and opportunities that recognise the valuable contributions of all community members, no matter how small they are,” Cr Thain said. “Children’s Week is not only a great opportunity to celebrate our children but a chance to acknowledge the families and care-givers that work tirelessly for their benefit.”
“Children’s Week is a great time to make new friends, learn about our local family services and most importantly enjoy a day spent with your little ones.”
