Welcoming babies to the Purfleet community

THE annual Biripi Baby Show at Purfleet has come around again.

This year the event has moved back to the original time of the year in April, and organisers are hoping this will mean sunny weather for the event.

Hosted by Biripi Maternal, Child and Family Health, the baby show will be held on Thursday, April 10 from 11am to 2pm at Purfleet.

This year the event will focus on the important topic of Ear Health, entitled "Healthy Muku's".

The Biripi Baby Show is a formal way for the Biripi community to congratulate the parents and to introduce the babies who were born between July 2013 and April 2014, to their community.

Elders from the Biripi community are invited to welcome the babies to their country of birth.

The babies' photos are taken on the day and are the parents' gift to the family.

Each baby's photo is also displayed in the Maternal, Child and Family building at the AMS.

Each parent and baby will be presented with a goodies bag that contains gifts and health information.

This year's entertainment will include traditional dancing, face painting and children's entertainment, with a healthy lunch and refreshments provided for the families and their guests.

The Biripi Baby Show could not happen each year without the partnerships and support from Quota, Community for Children, Burnside, Mission Australia, Catholic Care, Benevolent Society, Manning Support Services and St Josephs Taree Primary School Dancers.
