March Presidents Report
I can’t believe summer is almost over and the school year is well and truly underway. What a year it is for me. My eldest has started foundation and has had a really smooth transition in to school which was such a relief. He also received an award 2nd week in to school. My twins also started 3 year old kinder. My little pocket rocket settled in nicely, keen for me to leave but his twin brother not so much. Still getting used to the idea that I drop him off and don’t stay. I hope all the parents with kids starting kinder and school have had a smooth beginning to the year without too many tears!!
All our Playgroups are back in full swing! Chisholm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Yallourn on a Thursday and Young Bubs on Wednesday. Playgroup is a fantastic opportunity to come and meet some other multi parents and enjoy a cuppa and a chat. The students at Chisholm have started the year extremely enthusiastic, keeping the kids well entertained!
12th -19th March is Multiple Birth Awareness Week. This is an annual national event to celebrate families raising twins, triplets and more. The day also aims to raise awareness of the challenges that go hand-in-hand with raising these children. This year’s theme is “Born a multiple, also an individual”. AMBA is focusing on raising awareness around the individuality of Multiples; that even though they share a special bond as Multiples, they are still unique individuals.
CDMBA is celebrating this event by hosting a family BBQ on Sunday 19th March at Heritage Park, Selandra Rise at 10:30am. If you would like to come along please let me know! We have plenty of events and information sessions planned for the coming months so please keep an eye out on our Facebook Page and in the newsletters for further information. To help minimize the costing of our events and information sessions that we host we are always looking at fundraising, sponsorship and grant ideas.
If you or a family member work for a business that offer grants or may be able to assist us with sponsorship or fundraising please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Make the most of the remaining weeks of daylight savings, I certainly will be. I quite enjoy eating dinner outside whilst it’s still light. Though I’m certainly not going to complain about it getting darker earlier as hopefully my twins will fall asleep quicker!! I hope to see you all at Playgroup or an upcoming event soon. Take care!!
