Greenwood participates in the Chatswood StreetFair

On Saturday 7th of September, Greenwood participated in StreetFair. Hailed as the North Shore’s biggest community street party, this was the flagship event of the Emerge Festival.

Over eight-hundred people came together to celebrate their cultures through song and dance. This included three of our very own centres: Chatswood East, Artarmon and Chatswood.

Hear it from our teams 

‘We were up bright and early on Saturday morning, full of excitement to share the day with our North Shore community. It was wonderful to march in the parade and talk to our families as they visited our stall. Seeing all the children smile with their faces beautifully painted made our hearts feel warm. What a great experience we all had!’ Said Venita Rutley, our Greenwood Artarmon Centre Manager.

Our Chatswood East educators were there to make the day even better. Educator Siksha said that she loved the overall experience. In her words, “It was great to see the parents enthusiastically participating in the experience and having the community together in one fair was the best part of all.’

Educator Israa told us “Participating with Emerge has been an amazing experience, I was able to see the Chatswood community come together to celebrate cultural diversity and multiculturalism. Being part of the fair allowed me to be a part of the Chatswood community and to introduce our Greenwood family to them.”

We were even featured in the North Shore Times! Read about it right here.

There’s no doubt that a fabulous day was had by all. We already can’t wait for next year!
