Children’s Expo and Kidz Mini Mudda unite again!
For the third year running, the Bass Coast Children’s Week Expo is combining with Wonthaggi Primary School’s Kidz Mini Mudda for a day filled with fun and mud.
The Expo and Mini Mudda will take place on Saturday, 19 October at Wonthaggi Primary School, on Billson Street from 10.00am.
The Expo, which is supported by Bass Coast Shire Council, will showcase early years’ services from right across Bass Coast. Entry to the Expo is free.
Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari said that the Expo is a great way for local families to find out about what services are on offer for young people in Bass Coast, in the one place.
“Council is looking forward to taking part in the Expo and chatting to parents, children and families about early years’ services in Bass Coast,” Cr Tessari said.
“Council recognises the value of supporting early years’ services providers to connect with families and raise the profile of services available to improve the health and wellbeing of our community.”
The Kidz Mini Mudda is Wonthaggi Primary School’s major fundraiser for the year. It’s a muddy obstacle course, around one kilometre in length and open to school aged children, up to 16 years of age.
School Principal, Wendy Bradley, is looking forward to the event and said apart from the obstacle course, there will be plenty of free activities for children of all ages to enjoy on the day.
“There will be lots of food options, as well as fun and activities including free balloon twisting, a free photo booth and plenty of entertainment too,” Ms Bradley said.
“The mystery jars will be returning again this year - which were a huge hit with all the kids last year. You will want to get in early for these!”
This year, the Mini Mudda event will raise important funds to go towards the refurbishment of the school’s ageing buildings.
Registrations for the Mini Mudda are $25 and are now open at www.wonthaggips.vic.edu.au. You can also register on the day.
