Super Sibs Day – Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick

Last Saturday, the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick celebrated the siblings of patients with a disability or chronic health condition with the annual “Super Sibs” event.

Roosters duo Aidan Guerra and Dylan Napa went along after training to join other special guests from the Merlin Entertainment’s WILDLIFE Sydney Zoo, and the Clown Doctors.

The Roosters stars joined in a number of different activities with the children including 

 Cupcake decorating

 Face painting

 Soccer, basketball and yoga

 Collage and craft activities

 Music and song production

The Roosters duo were a big hit amongst patients and their families and so were the Roosters giveaways they brought along for everyone.

The event is an important occasion for siblings and their families and is conducted annually at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.

The morning provides an opportunity for siblings to meet other children in similar situations in a fun and relaxed environment.

It also aims to raise awareness of the importance of supporting siblings and all family members when they care for a child with a disability and/or medical needs.
