School visit provides connection with Elders

Our residents recently had a fantastic morning with a visit from St Joseph’s College Gregory Terrace Boys on their last day of school holidays. The level of interest and engagement from the residents and students was deadly. Tracy used her skills and knowledge to do a sketching class, several boys enjoyed a card game with some very interested residents, happy to sit back and watch the competition. Aunty Laurette told her story about being a part of the stolen generation which was very emotionally received by the boys. Doug and Aunty Gill happily entertained with some songs and guitar playing. And the highlight that drew a crowd, some hecklers, some fans, a ref and even a player was a game of touch footy. A great day had by all and we look forward to welcoming them back again soon.
