The Family Program at this year’s RDAQ conference was another highlight of the QRMFN 2016 calendar. We had 68 kids and 42 families and partners across our three day activity program this year.

The children had a chance to catch up and re-establish friendships at the children’s meet and greet on Thursday night. They were entertained by Tamara the face-painting fairy and balloon animal extraordinaire, as well as our team of delightful nannies. The kids feasted and played games, participated in art and craft activities and even held some impromptu karaoke! On Friday morning, the children participated in Rhythm Culture’s drum workshop. Thank you to all those parents who participated in the workshop – what an experience! All QRMFN members were invited to the concurrent (and slightly quieter) AGM and high tea luncheon. It was then on to Aussie World for an evening of storybooks and wonderlands at RDAQ Far Far Away! There was an opportunity to try out the rides and side shows at the amusement park and then to dinner at Hogwarts, dessert at the Mad Hatters Tea Party (complete with chocolate fountain of course!) and a chance to walk the plank on Pirate Island or get lost with Winnie-the-Pooh in the 100 Acre Wood. On Saturday a day trip was organised to Sea Life Aquarium at Mooloolaba followed by fresh fish and chips. On Saturday night we wrapped up the program with the kids’ Magic and Movies night. Vince the Magician wowed us with tricks and then it was time to settle down with blankets, pillows and movie snacks for an evening of viewing adventure, supervised again by our wonderful team of nannies.
