On Friday, October 27, 13 children from Peak Hill Preschool travelled by bus to the Peak Hill Memorial Park to participate in the Early Literacy Day organised by Neighbourhood Central.
The preschool children had a fantastic day as they listened to the Welcome to Country from Central School students Jada and Cooper, and participated in a singalong by Councillor Neil Westcott.
After the formalities were over the children were off to play on the jumping castle, have air brushed tattoos done, listen to a story by local the librarians and explore the local fire engine, each having a go at using the fire hose to knock down the witch’s hat.
There were also some craft activities and each child had their name added to a giant kangaroo or emu which will be placed at the local Neighbourhood Hub at Peak Hill.
Picnic blankets were laid out for lunch and the children enjoyed a delicious sausage sizzle for lunch at the park.
