A child’s response of ‘‘I love it when the bubbles fly up in the air’’ perfectly sums up the atmosphere at the most recent Sacred Heart Playgroup session.
During the past two months an open invitation was sent to school families as well as all Tatura residents resulting in a growing number of families regularly attending the playgroup sessions held in the school’s new outdoor learning area.
The sessions are inclusive and welcoming to all families in town.
At the most recent session, 25 toddler and kindergarten-aged children got creative when making Rudolph-themed biscuits, though they didn’t last long.
Other activities included role playing in the Sacred Heart supermarket, bubble blowing and role playing in the puppet theatre.
The children also had a special visit from the Year 6 students who read them Christmas-themed picture story books.
The sessions are sociable, with parents enjoying a chat while the children play together in an exciting school environment.
The children love to interact through the play-based activities the playgroup leaders organise.
Due to the extremely positive feedback, the program will definitely continue next year.
