Art as Celebration

Celebrating Art The Infants’ Home’s Way

On Saturday 10th May we welcomed the children, families, community members, educators and other staff who joined us to celebrate the creativity of our children at The Infants’ Home’s annual Art Show.

Despite having to postpone the event from the previous week due to poor weather, the day was a great success, with many children, families and educators mingling to admire and discuss the impressive artwork displays. Educators were on hand to talk with families about the children’s learning and experiences as they moved through the creative process.

Our annual Art Show, now in its 7th year, is one of our most important calendar events, enabling us to bring together our past, present and future families, along with other members of our local community, to look, admire, chat and connect.

“As well as being a wonderful opportunity to celebrate how our children explore and learn through their creativity and artistry, the Art Show also gives us a chance to catch up with our families in a relaxing social situation,” says The Infants’ Home’s CEO, Anita Kumar. “Some of our families have been with us for many years, as they have had several children attend our programs successively, and we also often have visits from families whose children have since moved on to primary school - and in some cases even to high school!”

The Infants’ Home was very fortunate to have members of the Rotary Club of Drummoyne, who gave up their time at very short notice, to man (and woman), the BBQ sausage sizzle on the day. They definitely cooked up a storm, sizzling and selling over 300 sausages in just two and a half hours! We would also like to thank MLC for helping us to purchase a brand new BBQ after our old BBQ spontaneously self-combusted at our last all staff gathering.

Thank you to everyone who made the day so special.
