Playgroup fun for all

By Laura Briggs

It was a party at playgroup for the toddlers of Tatura.

The Sacred Heart Playgroup saw mums and children gather for an autumn-themed morning last Friday.

With various autumn-themed activities and plenty to play with, the gathering had children as young as three weeks old there to be a part of the action.

Sacred Heart principal Pauline Hindson was also there to join in by reading the children a book and having a sing-along.

Ms Hindson said the playgroup was an opportunity for preschool-aged children to socialise with others and adapt to being in a school environment.

‘‘It just gives them a chance to be at school and use some of our facilities and it’s also really good for the parents to get to know each other and have that social time,’’ Ms Hindson said.

She said the playgroup was open to anyone from the community and ran each Friday from 9am to 10.30am.
