Canowindra High School played host to a Family Fun Day over the school holidays.

Cowra’s Home-Start Family Services’  Kirstin Stevenson said the they had over 160 people attend.

“The Canowindra Family Fun Day was a highly successful day,” she said.

“It exceeded our expectations with over 160 people attending, we were hoping for 150 people.

“The largest group was the primary school aged group with 105 people attending before 11:30am,” she said.

Ms Stevenson said the purpose of the day was to provide a free, family friendly and inclusive activity at the end of the school holidays.

“As family service providers we are keen to provide opportunities for families to spend time together and have fun,” she said.

“Especially during the school holidays, which can be very long and tiring for families.

“We were thrilled to see so many families there,” she said.

Ms Stevenson said they had a number of activities on offer for the children.

“Apart from laser tag, there were two jumping castles, sitting volleyball, which was very popular, and a number of giant games including Connect Four,” she said.

“The day was organised by Centacare Bathurst, Home-Start Cowra, Canowindra and Weddin, Ability Links and community members like Kobie Rogers.

“A huge Thank You to the Canowindra Lions club who not only provided the BBQ but also donated the very popular jumping castle.

“We thank them for their on going support of community events. Watch this space for our plans for late January 2018,” she said.
