With a combination of centre activities and community day trips, our Perth program wrapped up with an old-time favourite, a Music Rocks workshop!
Over two incredible weeks the children also got to:
- become culinary chefs with creative cooking classes
- get active at High Flyers and KidzParadise
- explore drama and dance at our Performing Arts workshops
- become artists in sensory art classes
While having fun is a top priority, each activity also encourages the children to develop their mobility, coordination, gross and fine motor skills, and creative expression. This include valuable opportunities to:
- grow friendships and interpersonal skills
- work collaboratively in a team
- develop respect and understanding of others
- build independence and confidence
Families share great feedback
The reason we’re so passionate about this program is because of the impact it has on the families and carers we support. Every school holiday we’re lucky to receive feedback from parents like Sam*, who like many others, juggles various familial responsibilities.
“Thanks to your program for looking after my son whilst I have some time for myself and other members of my family,” she says.
“I know that when he is with you he is in good hands and I have the peace of mind and extra time to enjoy the day out with my other son who also needs me.”
Parents also recognise changes in their children after the program has finished and see the skills they’ve developed. One parent, Faye*, said:
“My son attends SHP because this is a chance to be around other children as he is an only child with no friendships formed yet.”
She added that she had some concerns about his isolation and appreciates him attending and developing social skills.
“I feel that all staff at Workpower are passionate about wanting to provide a safe and fun opportunity for participants,” she says. “Thank you for that opportunity.”
Support for everyone
Over 40 families received support during this July program alone! The children enjoyed themselves, made friends, and developed their skills, while families were able to take a well-deserved break.
Everyone had a wonderful time and we can’t wait for September!
