Cowra Family Week

Two Cowra Police Officers and a volunteer RFS member read stories to children during Family Week . A Community Services representative then conducted craft in the multi-purpose room and everyone enjoyed hot dogs for lunch. A highlight of the day was the bubble wrap play. This was noisy but loads of fun as you can see from the photo of the Ryan children popping it. This idea came about because of one book which was read: Chloe by Peter McCarty. It is about Chloe Bunny lives who with her big family of ten older brothers and sisters and ten younger brothers and sisters, but it is only Chloe who is able to compete with the new television set that Dad brings home one evening.
