Fathering Project BBQ - Walk to School Day

Kieran Moore

12 th April 2019 Fathering Project – Walk to School Day

Today we started the day with BBQ breakfast at the Piara Waters Pavillion. As the sun was coming up we were sparking up the BBQs and the smell of bacon soon filled the air. Working with the Fathering Project we invited all our father figures down to the oval for breaky, the Piara Waters Pirates met us on the morning with bags and bags of footies for the kids to use. We had 100 plus Dads and their kids there on the morning. At 8:15 we all made the 15-minute walk up from the Pavilion to the Primary School as a group. There was lots laughter, lots of chatting and lots of new friendships made. The kids loved the time they had with their Dads, Step Dads, Uncles, Grandads, Godfathers and friends. Our walk to school day was a total success with over 500 people walking to school that day. All our father figures were then invited along with the rest of our school community to join us for an ANZAC Day service. It was a wonderful morning and one that many will remember for a long time.

A great update Keiran. I've linked it to the "run an event" activity, which gives you 40 points. I love the innovative idea of linking in with the local footie club, so you've also earned 15 innovation points plus another 10 points for making it such a great read with all the details. It must have been quite a sight to see all those walkers!
