Cootamundra Hub to help drought affected farmers

The crippling effect of drought on farming communities in NSW has inspired Intereach Cootamundra Community Hub to launch a fun fundraiser for farmers.

 

Local families with babies and preschool aged children have been invited to attend Wiggle and Giggle at the Hub on Tuesday 14 August dressed as farmers or farm animals.

 

Participants are asked to bring items to donate to a care pack for affected farmers, such as non-perishable food, bottles of water, nappies, pet food and toiletries.

 

Don’t attend Wiggle and Giggle? Local people are still welcome to drop their donated goods in to Intereach Cootamundra Community Hub where staff will ensure every donation is passed along to drought affected farming families.

 

Intereach CEO Keryn Fox said, “This is an opportunity for local people to pitch in to help farming families who are doing it really tough. It’s all about coming together as a community and doing our part, every donation helps and every donation is welcome, nothing’s too little.”

 

Wiggle and Giggle meets at the Intereach Cootamundra Community Hub every Tuesday from 10.30am till 12pm and new members are always welcome. The group offers parents of young children an opportunity to meet, chat and access information while children enjoy fun activities that support their development.

Struggling to coordinate work with your child’s after school activities? The Deniliquin Intereach Out Of School Hours (OOSH) Program has a solution!

 

During term three, OOSH will be offering after school sports at no additional cost to parents.

 

OOSH kids will be able to enjoy Karate with Daniel on Mondays at 4pm and Gymnastics with Tahnee on Thursdays at 3.30pm.

 

Intereach CEO Keryn Fox said, “We understand how challenging it can be for parents to combine work or study with the school pick up and their child’s after school activities. Offering sports through OOSH gives our children opportunities to try new things or continue to do the activities they enjoy in a supportive and encouraging environment.”

 

Intereach Out of School Hours (OOSH) Care provides after school and school holidays childcare for primary school aged children. In addition to karate and gymnastics the OOSH program focusses on active free play and other fun activities such as art, sport, craft, cooking and drama.

 

During the school term, OOSH children are picked up from their school by the local bus company and dropped off at OOSH where they receive a nutritious afternoon tea. The service is based at the Intereach Family Centre on Trickett Street and runs Monday to Friday, 3pm to 6pm, during the NSW school term and 8am till 6pm during NSW school holidays.

Intereach Family Day Care educator Angela Coffey among the best

Intereach Deniliquin Family Day Care Educator Angela Coffey has been named Riverina regional winner in the 2018 Excellence in Family Day Care Awards. The awards celebrate the important role educators play in the lives of children, families and communities across Australia.

 

Intereach Family Day Care offers flexible and extended hours of childcare for babies and children under the age of 13. Care is provided for small groups of children in the homes of registered Family Day Care educators. Angela is one of 28,000 family day care educators providing quality education and care to more than 200,000 children across Australia.

 

Angela said, “I was delighted just to be nominated! It’s really nice to get the recognition and feel valued by the families that I work with. I was actually quite shocked when I had found out that I had won. I won the award the previous year and there are so many wonderful educators in our region that I really didn’t expect to get the call telling me I had won again! The thing I enjoy the most about working in Family Day Care is the relationships you build with the children and their families. It’s so wonderful to see the personalities of the children thrive in a small group environment and experience their growth and development.”

 

Angela was nominated for the award by local school teacher Sarah Campbell. Sarah said, “I’m ecstatic that Angela has won this award and I think it really validates the care and effort she puts into her work. My children have flourished under her care. She has wonderful ideas that help the children learn and develop and she invests such love into everything she does. We are so lucky to have her as part of our lives.”

 

Intereach CEO Keryn Fox said, “It is such a proud moment for Intereach to have one of our Educators announced as regional winner. It is wonderful to see our passionate Educators hard work being recognised and we would like to congratulate Angela on her achievement.”

Boomerang Bags Deniliquin is an initiative of the Edward River Sustainability Group. This is an opportunity to join a sewing bee supported by Intereach Ability Links.

Intereach CEO Keryn Fox said, “This is a fantastic community initiative and a great opportunity for local people to come together to help build a clean, green and sustainable town. It’s also a chance for people to be creative, learn a new skill and use up those scraps of fabric that might otherwise go to waste.”
