Berala Bibs and Bangles - Information & Cultural Exchange

Berala Bibs and Bangles

Berala Bibs and Bangles supports newly arrived families with preschool children living in Berala to create bilingual digital resources through a process of creative engagement. The families will work with artists and facilitators and take part in arts and crafts, storytelling, videography and other creative activities while engaging with each other, developing their English literacy and content for the digital resource. The project encourages families to keep speaking their mother languages, fosters an environment of appreciation for the families’ cultural diversity and creative expressions. The bilingual digital resources will then be shared with families through the Family Creative Hub’s network, as a resource to trigger opportunities for bilingual learning for children.

The Facilitators for Term 3, 2019 are:
Mariam Sawires : Artist/facilitator
Alnie Chanel Biala : Facilitator/videographer
Sherbanu Oomatia (ADSi Family Worker)
Firduas Soeb Dhunvavwala (ADSi Playgroup Facilitator)
Adela Amin (Berala Public School Community support worker)
