Smiles lit up the faces of children when they were entertained during the annual family day event hosted by Early Years Services, a non-government organisation (NGO) in Athlone.

The family-orientated get-together took place at Fisantekraal in July.

The NGO conducts drug and foetal alcohol syndrome training workshops in the communities around Cape Town.

They target early childhood practitioners, youth, parents and the community members at large, in order to spread the message and impart knowledge.

According to the NGO’s director, Avril Cupido, on the day they first conducted parenting training.

“We gave them tips on how to deal with children and allowed them time to ask any questions they had,” Cupido explained.

After the workshop with parents concluded, festivities began to keep the entire family, young and old, entertained.

They were treated to games such as painting, chess, dance and singing.

Cupido said the aim was to allow children to have fun.
