Rainbow Day a success

RAINBOW Day may have been full of fun and colour yesterday, but there was a serious message at the end of it.

More than 350 people turned up to the PCYC for the event, held as part of Child Protection Week, whose aim is to reinforce the importance of child safety.

“Child protection is everybody's business,” Lifeline counsellor and community educator Lyn Alma said.

She said the important message had been relayed through the morning session for under-fives.

“We would like to work towards a child safe community, a safe place for children,” she said.

The day had plenty on offer, with stalls from community organisations including Phoenix House, Edon Place and the Department of Child Safety.

Too keep the kids entertained, jumping castles, face painting, police vehicles, fire trucks and creative arts were on offer.
