Huxley celebrates Easter early with Peter Rabbit

Last Sunday, we organised a Family Day featuring a private screening of Peter Rabbit at Hoyts Entertainment Quarter in Sydney. We would like to thank all 200 clients and candidates who joined us to celebrate an early Easter together, along with their families. 

Our event comprised of interactive activities including an Easter egg hunt, face painting and balloon sculpting that was suitable for children of all ages. Our Huxley team also organised a colouring competition while popcorn and drinks were served before the movie.

It was great to see everyone in good spirits. Our Peter Rabbit private screening enabled our clients and candidates to have quality time with their families. It was also a great opportunity for both our clients and candidates to get to know each other within a more relaxed environment outside of work hours.

Before the start of the movie, we ran a short clip to raise awareness about SOS Children's Villages Philippines, our chosen charity for the APAC region since 2009. Our aim was to raise people’s awareness of SOS Villages and how our small contribution can make a big difference for children of the SOS Children’s Villages Philippines.  We are one of SOS Children's Transformational Corporate Partners today and one of their largest supporters of children in need around the world. 

We hope that everyone enjoyed the event as much as we did and we look forward to meeting more of you at the next Family Day. Here are what attendees had to say about the event:

“Thanks to all at SThree for putting on a wonderful morning it was great to have the family involved, the colouring competition and Easter egg hunt were a hit, cannot wait for the next family event, well done, couldn’t have been better!” - Stuart Webb, Senior Business Manager, Bench Media

“Sunday was a great opportunity to not only thank our clients and candidates, but also to hold an event that was more family focussed. We appreciate everyone is busy and family time at the weekend is very important, so what better way to say thanks than to get our faces painted and watch Peter Rabbit!” -  Tim Moran, Regional Director, SThree APAC

When you’ve been working with clients and candidates for a while you get to hear quite a bit about their families so it was really great to host an event where we could finally meet everyone’s family.  It looked like everyone was having fun, especially the kids when we did the Easter egg hunt!” - Georgina Beavis, Senior Principal Consultant from the Huxley team
