Special and Cultural Events
Helping Children feel part of the community
Our program of special events throughout the year enhances each child’s learning and development in relation to their identity and connection with the wider community.
Our events celebrate the multi-cultural nature of Australian society, introducing the children to a diverse range of cultures, embracing both difference and similarity. Indigenous Australian culture is also an important focus of our centre.
All Australian holidays are celebrated, including Australia Day, ANZAC day, Mother’s Day, Fathers day, Christmas etc along with a wide range of important dates in other cultures, and are tailored to the needs and cultural backgrounds of each child.
At Possum Hollow we try and make each child feel part of the wider community by involving them in fundraising efforts for various charities throughout the year
We have so many amazing cultures within our Centre, it is great to come together, learn and share with each other 🧡
Harmony Day! We encourage you to bring your little Possums dressed in either Orange or in their Multicultural dress for the day! We will be learning about all of the different cultures within our Centre and doing lots of fun activities!
