Koala Kids has just concluded another very successful happy holiday program in the Children’s Cancer Centre at Monash Children’s Hospital.

During the school term Koala Kids volunteers provide a fun activity every Monday.  During the school holidays when parents are more likely to have other siblings with them our volunteers provide additional entertaining activity sessions.

Activities these holidays included making play dough, creating and decorating your own solar system and painting your own squishies while parents enjoyed our delicious catered morning teas and lunches!

We also relaunched our happy book club, with children’s author Corinne Fenton being the first author to take the stage. Children of all ages enjoyed listening to Corinne’s stories, playing with her props and learning the process of how she creates her stories from start to finish. Happy Book Club is designed to expose children to different literacy styles and themes, and will feature a different children’s author or librarian each month.
