    Event Details

    Description

    We will be holding an exhibition of artwork produced by the children at Mitchell Shire kindergartens around the theme “Education has the power to transform children’s lives – Learning about the Child Safe Standards and personal safety”.

    The exhibition will be available for viewing at various venues in each town throughout the Shire to increase accessibility for all families, including the Mitchell Shire Council chambers, libraries at Seymour, Kilmore, Wallan and Broadford, Seymour and Kilmore Leisure Centres, Flowerdale Primary School, Pyalong Primary School and at the Wallan Children and Families Centre.

    In the lead-up to the exhibition to be held during Children's Week, staff and children will explore the theme of "Learning about the Child Safe Standards and personal safety" and together will create canvasses depicting the children's views on keeping and feeling safe. The children and families of the kindergartens (as well as the wider community) will be encouraged to attend the exhibition and use it as an impetus to elicit further discussion about feeling and keeping safe.

    The canvasses will ultimately be returned to the respective kindergartens where they were produced.
