On Saturday 14 September 2019 our Russian-language playgroup “Teremok” celebrated its tenth anniversary. On a beautiful spring morning, playgroup families and friends gathered under the oak tree in our church yard to watch the children give a performance that included the Russian folktale “Repka” ("The Giant Turnip"). Afterwards there was morning tea with a large birthday cake for all to share. Irene Lupish and Alla O’Regan gives speeches of congratulations and encouragement and the children enjoyed the visit of a petting zoo. We warmly congratulate playgroup coordinator Anastasia Harwood and all her helpers on this important anniversary.
