Earth People at Newtown Library!

On Wed 17th March Newtown Library had two Aoga Amata (Samoan preschool) groups with 30 children come and attend our Earth People fun. They were aged mostly 3-4 years old.

The kids listened to a multicultural storytime in English, Chinese and Samoan, then had a morning tea, before making Earth People with our resident artist Marg Elliot.

The Aoga Amata groups were from the Pacific Islanders’ Congregational Church and the Saint Anne’s AA.

Have a look at their results and some photos of the morning!
