Rise has celebrated Seniors Week 2017 with fun, laughter, and several tears as well.

All of our social centres combined for two great days out.

Seniors Week a hit

At Peter Anderton Centre in Forrestfield, staff organised a cultural day.

Guests enjoyed dancing by students at Hampton Senior High School. They also heard from law student and dancer Bree Yarran. Bree went on a journey to trace her family heritage, leading to a mission in the state’s south west. This was turned into a documentary, which was shown to guests. A few tears were shed as it was such a moving story of strength and resilience.

Bree’s family was at the cultural day and shared many artifacts and photographs. Our guests then enjoyed kangaroo tail stew and other traditional foods. There was a huge buzz in the air on the day.

Armadale enjoys food trucks

Later in the week, all the centres combined again for a day out in Armadale. Guests enjoyed a sausage sizzle lunch, with an ice cream van and coffee van providing tasty treats!

In the afternoon there was quizzes galore and lots of prizes to be won. It was fabulous to see all the centres join together so people could make new friends.
