Inala Community House: Child Protection Community Fun Day

On Wednesday 2nd October 2019, Inala Community House (ICH) services collaborated to organise Child Protection Community Fun Day during the school holidays. Our aim was to raise awareness about child protection and ways to keep our children safe in the community.

From 10am to 2pm, the free community event was held at Elizabeth Bruce Playground (corner of Japonica and Robinia Streets, Inala QLD).

Many free fun activities including:

  • Games and great prizes
  • Sausage sizzle
  • Photobooth
  • Jumping castle
  • Snow cones
  • Hair colouring
  • Face painting and more

ICH Out of Home Care and Tertiary Family Support teams took the main lead as organisers. We offered face-painting and hair spray services.

ICH ‘My Place’ Family Day Care team was in charge of the petting zoo. We had many piglets, chicks, ducks and lambs. Children and even adults joined in the fun to feed and play with the baby animals.

ICH Community Engagement team manned the busy sausage sizzle.
