End of Year Recap Session + Dinner

Join us for pizza and pastries!
Wednesday 27 November
5.30 - 7.30pm
We are coming up to our last session in this series of Carer Training Sessions.

We have received lots of positive feedback from those of you who have been able to attend some of them, as well as some saying they were disappointed they could not attend.

This last session will be a bit of a recap and overview of the previous sessions, a chance for you to share with us and each other your reflections of the training, and provide feedback about what went well and what can be improved. We are also very keen to hear your thoughts on further training, so that we can work towards doing more of these sessions for you in the new year.

This session will be facilitated by Sharee Borlace, who most of you know, and Nikki Hartmann, the new Manager of Time for Kids.
