The Stitches Collection NAIDOC

Embrace the Difference in Others

If COVID taught us anything, it is about the importance of unifying to overcome struggles. However, we also saw how many people felt divided and isolated as well.

This program, which aligns with NAIDOC, allows us to remember to celebrate differences to build a stronger and kinder community. The program will focus on the inclusion of all kids irrespective of any cultural differences, physical differences, disabilities, or emotional differences.

Fun Day Out is proud to offer their first program in partnership with community organisation, Stitches Collection, to bring the kids in your care a NAIDOC week activity through story, puppetry, art, and dialogue.

“The kids really enjoyed this activity. The presenter did a great job keeping the kids engaged which is amazing for her first time running the program. The kids loved the different activities, and we were surprised at how well they responded.”
Lorraine, Coowarra OOSH
