Dreamtime fun at Very Special Kids

During the September School Holidays, children staying at Very Special Kids Hospice enjoyed a range of interactive and fun activities.

With a special ‘Dreamtime theme’, the children had many opportunities to explore Australian indigenous culture through stories, arts and crafts, outings and hands on experience.

From excursions to the Melbourne Museum and visiting the Bunjilaka Cultural Centre to cooking up a storm making bush tucker and damper, we even met some Australian wildlife!

In addition, children also engaged in art and music therapy activities and created a large Dreamtime artistic piece. Thank you to Svett from The Art Cabriolet and Amy our onsite Musical Therapist for making the School Holiday Program an amazing interactive and creative experience.

Operated four times each year by Very Special Kids Hospice, the School Holiday Program ensures that children with life-threatening conditions have access to activities and outings in a safe and controlled environment.
