Workshop: Jaden Sheridan of the Skateboarding Program and youth group Gurnly Neighbors run a T-shirt printing workshop.

Harmony Week saw the Seymour family come out on Friday, March 18, at the Seymour Family and Children’s Center to celebrate diversity and harmony.

More than 120 Seymour and District residents – mostly children and their parents and caregivers – visited the community space on Stewart St. to connect with local service providers and join in the fun.

Organized by Our Place Seymour and partners Seymour College, Kids First Kindergarten and Michelle Scherer, the event aims to promote the Harmony Day theme that everyone belongs to and bring the community together for a free, personal celebration.

Attendees were treated to a barbecue, face-painting and hot and cold drinks, courtesy of the Marvelicious Coffee Vans. They also had the opportunity to participate in activities run by Seymour Program facilitators, including T-shirt screen printing with Gurney Neighbors, puppet performances by Jason Triggs, and a play session run by after-school hours care provider Kelly Club.

On top of this, the First Nations Assembly of Victoria, Family Care, Victoria Police and Jobs Victoria set up stalls to provide information and advice to adults and to provide colorful goodie bags to children. 815E 5B80 A3Ab B12Fda2659Ed&Amp;Function=Cropresize&Amp;Type=Preview&Amp;Source=False&Amp;Q=75&Amp;Crop W=0.99999&Amp;Crop H=0.44379&Amp;Width=1200&Amp;Height=675&Amp;X=1.0E 5&Amp;Y=0

Helping: Liz and Liam from Family Care provide information for parents and merchants for children.

“It was wonderful to see so many smiling faces coming together after two years of limited opportunities,” said our Place Seymour community facilitator Louis Bowden.

“There are so many great things happening in the city and the more chances families are to find out about them and get involved, the better.”

The Seymour Family and Children Center is a community space offering a range of complementary programs and services to maternal and child health services, kindergarten and school alike.

It is a collaborative partnership between Seymour College, Kids First Australia, Mitchell Shire Council and Our Place.
