Children’s Week comes to life with Super Kids Sunday

Children’s Week comes to life with Super Kids Sunday

Monday, October 04, 2021

Children and families in the City of Whittlesea are invited to celebrate Children’s Week virtually this year with our annual Super Kids Sunday event.

This fun-filled event kicks off on Sunday 24 October and will transport you into a digital play space with on-demand videos, live-streamed performances, artworks, stories and more.

Administrator Chris Eddy said the annual event was traditionally celebrated in play spaces and parks throughout the municipality, but with COVID-19 restrictions in place, Council was now pivoting to bring Super Kids Sunday online.

“Led by a Welcome to Country with Wurundjeri woman Kellie Hunter, Super Kids Sunday will see live-streamed performances from magician Nick Nickolas and even snake handlers from Reptile Encounters,” Mr Eddy said.

“There’s also a range of live workshops for children and families to take part in, from crafting your very own puppet from recycled materials, discovering the basics of AusLan signing to learning how to juggle. There’s truly something for everyone.”

“We’re so amazed by the resilience of the children within our community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and are excited to deliver this interactive fun experience for all children to enjoy.”

Other highlights of the Super Kids Sunday program include:

  • the premiere of a musical composition for the Mill Park All Abilities Play Space composed by local resident Michael Johnson
  • solo and group performances from singing students across the municipality
  • a live-streamed circus performance from the Quizzical Mr Jeff.
