One of Parkerville Children and Youth Care’s Child Parent Centres: Brookman held a families week BBQ and activity after school to celebrate Families Week 2016.
One hundred and forty people attended the fun event. Families in attendance created “Family Shields” to represent who they are as a family and what was important to them.
Apart from there being many creative outcomes, what blew us away was the incidental feedback that came through the art work. Two families in particular had created shields relating to the Child Parent Centre itself, with one adding the words “Bringing People Together”. This was totally unexpected and has really demonstrated the impact that the centre is having on the community. Thank you to all families and staff that made this community event such a success.
