Communicare Highlights National Families Week

For children aged between four and 12, the drawing competition will give them the opportunity to create an artwork of their family. For young people who are 4 to 16 years of age, the story telling competition will highlight how their family has helped them learn and grow.

It could be a story about their parents, grandparents, siblings, foster parents, aunties, uncles or cousins.

Communicare CEO Martine Pitt said this year’s theme for National Families Week is ‘Families make all the difference: helping kids to grow and learn’.

“For this year’s National Families Week, we encourage everyone to think about and appreciate the valuable role families can play to help children develop, learn and grow,” she said.

“Communicare has been providing support services to families for 35 years. Over that time many things have changed but the one that always remains the same is the importance of family.

“A family exists because of a bond between young and old or a group of siblings. No matter the make up of the family, whether there is a mum and dad, just a mum, two dads, grandparents, foster parents, or only brothers and sisters, the support a family provides to a young child makes all the difference to their development and growth,” said Ms Pitt

The closing date of the competition is Friday, May 18.

Competition forms can be downloaded from http://www.communicare.org.au/About-Communicare/national-families-week-competition.html or copies can be collected from reception at 28 Cecil Avenue in Cannington.
