Plenty of pyjama party play for a good cause

GOOD Beginnings held its annual pyjama party to celebrate Families Week at tagari lia Child and Family Centre recently.

National Families Week is the nation’s major annual celebration of the vital role of families. National Families Week has been celebrated every May since 2003 to coincide with the UN International Day of Families in May.

This year the party was joined by special guests Minister for Education and Deputy Premier, Jeremy Rockliff,  Speaker of the House of Assembly Elise Archer, Craig Farrell MLC, Senator Catryna Bilyk, and Jeanette Banks from the Commissioner for Children’s Office. These VIPs brought children’s books to the party and each sat in the red reading chair and entertained the children and families with a story.

Louise Ims with her daughter Olivia, 4, wore matching PJs, and enjoyed some special time together.

Reading stories plays such an important part in children’s development, plus it is such a fun thing parents and young children to do! Each year Good Beginnings celebrates the joy of parents, grandparents and carers reading to their children. Everyone comes dressed in their pyjamas and are fed special breakfast treats like cocoa and raisin toast.
