Our Connecting Generations program involves children and their GrandBuddies meeting up for friendship, fun and to improve their overall health and safety. Unfortunately due to COVID, the children and their GrandBuddies cannot meet in person.
This hasn't stopped the children at Discovery Early Education and Care centre Thrumster, meeting regularly via Zoom with Uniting Mingaletta Aged Care.
The children connect with their GrandBuddies and are enjoying getting to know each other by singing, sharing art and stories, and learning important safety messages together.
Read their Blog entry and see more pictures of the children completing the first activity of making a friendship hand.
Thanks to Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation for making this program possible.
