CHILDREN at the Coffs Harbour and District Family Day Care got an energy-packed taste of Africa yesterday.

They enjoyed a visit from Sunday Ali from performer group Jambo Africa, who not only demonstrated a range of percussion instruments, but also gave the kids a chance to try their hands at it.

"It was a bit of a multi-cultural experience for kids and their carers to enjoy," organiser Sara Crompvoets said.

"The kids enjoyed some dancing and got involved with playing the drums, then Sunday got all the kids to make bracelets. It was fantastic."

The centre puts on a show or activity like this once a term.

The Coffs Harbour Family Day Care playgroup operates Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9.30am to 11.30am. For more informa- tion call 6652 7819.
