Your Guide to all the FREE Activities happening at My Family Weekend 2019

My Family Weekend is back this year for the third year running! An initiative organised by the Families for Life Council, it kicks off this coming Friday, 6 Septemb er 2019 in conjunction with the Teachers' Day school holiday and lasts all the way until Sunday, 8 September 2019.

The objective of My Family Weekend is simple - to make time for our family and celebrate family bonding through the many activities happening this weekend. As schools and pre-school centres will be closed on 6 September due to Teacher's Day, kids will have no school so a growing number of employers have already pledged their support to put in place family-friendly workplace options on this day to support family time.

But more than that, there are plenty of events taking place this 7 & 8 September weekend - which happens to the the start of the Septemebr school holidays - and MOST OF THEM ARE FREE!


Kick things off on the right note on Eat With Your Family Day

Now this is one event you can organise on your own! Eat with your Family Day has increased its frequency to four times and is held on the last Friday of each quarter. Remember to leave work on time and have a good meal together with your family!
