How does your family show respect?

National Families Week (May 15th to 21st) is a week of celebrating families, a time to reflect on what our family means to us and how we appreciate all of the things that they do. This year, to celebrate the unique and diverse families that we have in our community, we are thinking a little differently; along with the Midwest Early Year’s Network, we’re holding a story competition to get you and your family being creative together. The theme is “How does your family show respect?”

Families with children aged up to 12 years can enter for chance to win a fabulous families gift pack, all you need to do is download the story templates (see bottom of post) and get writing or drawing to tell us how your family shows respect. Age ranges are as follows: 0-4, 5-8 and 9-12.

Kids too young to write? Don’t worry, they can draw us a picture; though mums, dads, grandparents or carers do need to write what the drawing is about for us to make sure we understand the story.

Scan or take a photo of the story or picture and send it to us along with your child’s name, age and a contact number to or you can deliver it to us at 25 Chapman Road (opposite McDonalds in town). We may post entries on our social media pages so please make a note if you do not want your child’s name published with their picture or story. So get creative and tell us what respect means to your family.

Entries must be received by 12:00 pm May 24th 2021 with the winners announced at the Community, Respect and Equality Summit’s Welcome Reception on Wednesday May 26th from 6-8 pm at Bundiyarra Aboriginal Community Aboriginal Corporation, Eastward Rd, Utakarra WA 6530.
