Social Skills Community Carousel
The 'Social Skills' program sees our students take part in workshops and engage with guest speakers from the community about elderly isolation.
The students organise a variety of activities with a local nursing home, including bingo games, reading sessions and baking for local nursing home residents. Students also consider 'seasonal' themed visits for Christmas and Easter.
'I believe developing our students' holistically is vital and having them engaged as young members in our community instils strong character values while encouraging learning about the joys of giving up of their time in an act of kindness and service to others.’
