Kids discover life

WILD hats, crazy shades and socks with toes.

Six Southern Downs young ladies spent the past 10 weeks embarking on a voyage of self discovery through Friends; a workshop offered by Bush Children’s to fight childhood anxiety and building resilience to help kids manage worry and depression now and in later life. The Year 4 and 5 pupils marked the end of the program with a performance in Leslie Park for their family under a crazy theme.

Chloe Barber, 10, said she now knew how to work through bad days with the tools the program offered.

“You don’t have to lose friends over silly arguments,” Chloe said.
