With the closing of the curtain at the October FunSing workshop concert, FunSing’s tenth year was over. A truly wonderful landmark.
“When we started the program in 2009, we thought it would fill a gap in theatre style activities for Ballina children and teens” FunSing Director Kim Hernage said. “Although we believed singing, dancing and acting activities would contribute to holiday fun and assist in youth personal development, we weren’t 100% sure how it would be seen by parents generally”.
FunSing is a fast pace, high energy program that kids from the area have fallen in love with and parents have recognised the benefits. “They continue to be amazed at what the kids are able to achieve in just 4 days” Kim added.
The program fills to its limit every time with return customers and word of mouth communication. Over 600 children and teens from throughout the Northern Rivers have attended FunSing a total of 1800 times.
