Free Family Fun with the Parliament of NSW

Date Time Event

Storytelling session: A Bus Called Heaven by Bob Graham

What happens when an old broken down bus appears in Stella’s street? How could this bus possibly bring a community together?

Join Megan from the NSW Parliament’s Education team for a reading of this award-winning story from Bob Graham – an  Australian children’s writer who illustrates his own books.

This book’s theme of hope uniting a community is an especially timely tale today.
