Act for Kids Celebrates International Women’s Day

 

From traditional Indian and Chinese dances, to inspirational spokeswomen and ladies lunches, International Women’s Day was a day of celebration at Act for Kids!

In Western Sydney, the Act for Kids team attended the Blacktown International Women’s Day event, supporting the community organisation SydWest Multicultural Services. The day was attended by 200 local women who enjoyed a day filled with music from a local senior drumming group, traditional dances and a moving speech by breast cancer survivor Joanne Colquhoun.

Robyn Eliudi, Occupational Therapist at Act for Kids’ Western Sydney centre, said Act for Kids contributed to the day by being an active member of the planning committee and supporting all of the attending women and mothers.

“We were happy to help on the day by providing mothers with information on child development, as well as modelling age appropriate play interactions with children,” said Robyn.

Other festivities were hosted by Act for Kids’ Brisbane North Intensive Family Support (IFS), who invited the mothers in the Strong Women Are Proud (SWAP) Group to celebrate Queensland Women’s Week with a lunch at the Kedron centre. The mothers relaxed and enjoyed lunch while their children were looked after by members of the IFS team.
