    Event Details


    Council will invites all families, primary schools and children’s services in Yarra to the annual Children’s Week Day at the Collingwood Children’s Farm, St Helier’s Street Abbotsford. We will have the traditional hay rides, milking the cow, face painting, songs and stories and the usual array of feathery, furry, hairy, aromatic creatures feeding and foraging at the Farm. Also we will have a music program, indigenous activity (focus with children) and sporting space.

    We will also be providing some bus transport to encourage participation through our supported playgroup network, particularly of vulnerable families living in the housing estates in the City of Yarra.

    This will be a collaboration with youth, family and children's services allowing youth participation in the develop of the program and the change to participate in a leadership role.
