Supporting Extraordinary People

    to promote Healthy Living and Skills Development

    Everyone deserves the opportunity to gain new skills and experiences, face challenges and realise their hopes and ambitions.
    to promote Social Inclusion

    Everyone should be able to make new friends, have fun and be part of a social group.
    to promote Continuing Education, Training and Work Experience

    Everyone has the right to an education. People with disabilities should have the encouragement and support to allow them to build confidence and self esteem, realise their potential and be all that they can be.

    Noone should feel isolated or excluded because of their caring responsibilities, or miss out on vital information, support or advice. Everybody needs a break. We are all in this together.

    Today the Friday group visited Willowgate Activity Centre where the group split into two teams, the championz and the vendetta's.
    The teams planned their strategy and drew pictures of their rafts. We all learned how to tie a figure of 8 and used our new skills to build rafts. Once the rafts were built and we were happy they were sturdy it was time to get changed into wet suits, life jackets and helmets and launched our rafts. Team championz fell in first, leaving team vendetta's to victory. Lee and Michelle were the remainders so they battled to be last one standing, Michelle was the winner. The group then came together and jumped off the jetty before getting changed and having a well deserved rest before coming home again.

    A great day for all!

    Today the Thursday group visited Murton farm.

    In the morning, we focused on map reading. We initially studied local maps to get an understanding of the symbols on maps. We then were given a map of Murton farm reserve. There were 18 locations on the map that we had to find and note what symbol should be used to identify the location. We walked the full reserve to find all locations and note the symbols. Everyone got involved and they were all happily writing down the answers.

    Lunch was indoor, followed by some bush crafts. We worked on making hammers to help us crack open nut shells. Most hammers stayed intact throughout the nut cracking and no one got a crack over the head.

    The sun came out enroute home so we all enjoyed the bus ride back.

    Today the Peer-Support group visited Willowgate activity centre for our Employability course.

    In the morning, we looked at how an instructor would set up a group archery course, thinking about things like safety. We then headed out for a demonstration before giving it a go ourselves. We worked in twos to offer support and tips to each other whilst shooting. We finished off the activity with a competition in which Ryan and Jack won with 130 points each. Well done guys!

    After lunch, we tried some orientation. In two groups, we followed a map to find letters that had been strategically placed around the site. Both groups were successful in following the map and finding the letters.

    We will be in the water next week so please remember a towel, shoes that can be used in the water and swimwear.
