Celebrate National Families Week 2017

Eurobodalla Council’s children’s services is encouraging residents to celebrate the importance of families by attending fun events for National Families Week.

Held every year, the week celebrates the vital role families play in society and calls on people to reach out to family and friends and share in the enjoyment of family activities.

Children can bring their family story to life using traditional Aboriginal painting methods at free family painting workshops in Batemans Bay, Tuross Head, Bodalla and Sunshine Bay starting next week.

There’s also an excursion to the Narooma Boardwalk and Apex Park on Wednesday 17 May that includes a nature-look-and-find, games and a morning tea.

Council’s after school care children will also be creating masterpieces of their families during the week.

National Families Week 2017 will be held from Monday 15 May to Sunday 21 May 2017 and coincides with the United Nations International Day of Families on 15 May.

Council’s Coordinator Children and Family Services Louise Hatton said this year’s Families Week theme was 'Stronger families, stronger communities'.

“This theme highlights the important role families play as the central building block of our community and that community wellbeing is enhanced by family wellbeing,” she said.

“Let’s acknowledge the critical role all families play in building a stronger community and take time to celebrate your community with your family.”
