Festival attendees came in droves to the O-Hub activity tent to learn about the types of support offered through the Strong Families program.
Strong Families staff from all four Welfare Reform communities converged on the Laura Aboriginal Dance Festival in June to spread the word about positive parenting. An activity tent was set up so that families could take time out from the festival, participate in fun activities, and yarn with staff about the types of support on offer through the program. Families appreciated the change tables, shady seating area and activities for children, like drawing and colouring.
Mossman Gorge Parenting Consultant, Julie Williams, exhibited her creative skills at the face painting stall. Children loved it and patiently queued to await their turn.
The festival was a great experience for Cape community members, who came from far and wide to celebrate Aboriginal dance and culture. Our staff are already looking forward to the next one.
