On Wednesday 16 December the UnitingCare West Newpin program held its Christmas Party at the Merriwa Service Centre.
The children enjoyed having their faces painted on the day while the mothers in the program swapped Secret Santa gifts.
The afternoon was topped off by a celebration lunch and a visit from Santa, who distributed gifts to all of the children.
Newpin is a centre-based, early intervention program directed at strengthening the mother-child relationship.
The program provides parent education, development and support as well as play therapy and support for the children.
Newpin is the only program of its kind currently operating in WA.
