“One event that really captured my imagination is Mud Play, which is aimed at younger children and centres on experiential play,” said Priscilla.

“As an educator it is great to see opportunities where children and their families can learn together through outdoor play by searching for dinosaur fossils, playing in the mud and making crafts with found objects.

“Another event, this time for the older students, is the 30 minute freestyle football come and try sessions in Victoria Square/ Tarntanyangga where they can learn new tricks from some of the best freestyle football athletes in the Nation,” she said.
