Buloke Busy Bees Colour And Connect

Publish date: 11 December 2023

Get ready for a splash of colour and a burst of youthful imagination with the 'Buloke Busy Bees Colour and Connect Activities Book!' 

Distributed this week to every eager primary aged child across Buloke, this book is a vibrant adventure waiting to happen. It’s more than just an activity book; it's a journey through our community helping children to understand the strength that comes from connection and collaboration.

Through fun and educational activities, they are introduced to the various places and services available in our towns, sparking their curiosity to explore them, and collecting Buloke Busy Bee stickers from participating retailers on their travels.

“Nurturing our future leaders and decision-makers is an essential part of building community understanding and preparedness for future challenges,” said Mayor Cr Allen Getley.

“Each page is a playground of possibilities, equipping our young ones to be proactive contributors and with goal to cultivate a safe, inclusive, resilient, and prosperous community for all.”

Designed by the creative minds of the Buloke Shire Council’s Community Recovery team, in collaboration with local artist, Kristie Dean, the book aims to spark curiosity and foster strong, compassionate, and intelligent community members.

The initiative has been made possible by funding from the Australian and Victorian Governments and the Community Recovery Program.

Caregivers, guardians, parents, teachers, and community leaders are encouraged to utilise the "Buloke Busy Bees" book as a conversation starter about supporting each other.

“Our commitment goes beyond preparing our youth for challenging times; we aim to nurture them into future leaders who exhibit empathy and make informed, beneficial decisions for everyone,” added the Mayor.

"This book is a fun way to help our kids think about how important community connection is and how they can help make Buloke a strong and safe place to live."
