    Thank you for our dolls face masks

    12 days ago

    A big thank you to a Maroondah City Council employee who made some face masks for their Occasional Care dolls. The children have enjoyed adding these to their hospital/safety play. This allows the educators to have spontaneous conversations about why people are wearing masks in the community during COVID19, what masks are doing to protect people and why it is not only hospital workers wearing them.

    5 minutes mindful practice - Saying hello… I am here…

    by Sweta, 12 days ago

    My dear loving community,

    It brings me great joy to share the first 5 minutes mindful practice with you. Here it goes…

    Hello… I am here…

    We will be do this practice over next 7 days. Every day we will add one little element (which is optional). Why, because our mind is very good at giving us many excuses to not drop in present moment, to name a few:

    - Oh! it’s the same practice. Boring. I need something new.

    - We go on autopilot. We ‘think’ we are practicing.

    - We are practicing but our body and mind are... Continue reading

    Spoonville

    by Gum Drop, about 1 month ago

    I had heard about people creating 'Spoonvilles' - clusters of smiling spoon families and this week I discovered one on my walk around Croydon. Well done to those who created this one!.

    A lovely message to one of our School Crossing Supervisors

    by Maroondah Council, about 1 month ago

    To Pete, Kalinda Primary School Crossing Supervisor

    We are keenly aware that you must be really missing the day to day interaction with our community and unlike so many of the kids and teachers – you obviously aren’t involved in video classes each day so we feel like you are missing out!

    Some members of our community have put together some messages for you. Take care Pete, you mean a lot to all of us!

    Children's letters deliver happiness to older residents in Maroondah

    by Denise, about 1 month ago

    Seven of our local primary schools have been sending hand written letters to older Maroondah community members as a way of staying connected and to let them know they are being thought of.

    These heartfelt letters have helped bring joy to older residents, particularly at a time when strict stay at home orders have been put in place and regular social activities have been cancelled.

    Thank you to these students for their kindness to others.

    Being kind to others

    3 months ago

    Rang at least one friend a week, smiled at others when out walking, showed my appreciation to people going 'extra mile' for me - especially Kerrabee, my aged care, Caladenia (usually volunteer here), my daughter. Difficult to do much when in isolation.

    Emergency Community Pantry

    by Kasie, 3 months ago

    In April, Glen Park Community Centre held an emergency Community Pantry providing food and house hold items to members of its community to help them through what has been and continues to be one of the toughest times we've seen.

    We rallied together with Eastland, Woolworths Eastland and Foodbank Victoria to provide these much needed items to our most vulnerable members of our community. The generosity of Eastland, Woolworths Eastland and Foodbank Victoria has been astounding, we can't thank them enough for their efforts and the additional staples were well and truly welcomed by the community.

    Glen Park will continue... Continue reading

    A wave from the garbage truck

    by Annette, 3 months ago

    My 2 year old was experiencing lots of emotions this morning and was stressed about having to go to daycare. Just as we were getting ready to leave, the recycling truck entered our street. My son, who is obsessed with trucks, was so excited to stand in the driveway to watch the bins being collected. My son waved to the driver, who made the effort to stop his truck and use the claw to 'wave' back. This made my son's day and he was now more than happy to go to daycare so he could tell them all how the... Continue reading

    Letters Share Love

    by Andrea at Ringwood Church, 4 months ago

    It's amazing what a letter can do - brighten a day, provide an activity, keep people connected.

    Ringwood Church of Christ have been using letters in a number of creative ways and perhaps it's something you can do too. There was the letter club at Easter where kids received a letter and activity sheet every couple of days for the two weeks leading up to Easter.

    For Mothers Day there were the Mothers Day Card kits that were distributed to people who registered so that children could still have something home made for mum.

    Kids Hope at Eastwood Primary converted... Continue reading
