Update from the Executive Officer
We are ready for 2021, thanks to you!
For all that 2020 threw at us, some of the best memories I have from the last year are of the remarkable spirit of our community.
The togetherness and resilience shown by our families was a shining light through a dark chapter. A lot of them endured significant stress throughout the haze of restrictions and lockdowns, but there were also a lot of smiles, laughter, and a sense of community and willingness to help each other.
This is something that I take a lot of inspiration from moving into this new year. The success of our altered programming last year, gives our families and community confidence that we can overcome whatever lies ahead. As we continue to navigate this ever-changing world, we remain committed to our core programming and our values. Our summer vacation care program operated fairly normally, with the exception of our new mantra for the kids; “have you got your mask and have you sanitised?”.
It was wonderful to be able to offer a full program with my highlight sitting down with the youth before Christmas for a delicious feast of turkey, ham and prawns. It was great to see the youth getting into the Christmas spirit, wearing crowns and telling lame jokes from the bonbons. Afterwards, we played Christmas themed bingo, while listening to carols.We look forward to being able to have our kids and youth here more often than we did over the last year. The building just isn’t the same without the noise of kids laughing, yelling, and running up and down the stairs.
Thank you for being there to support us.
