Estia Aged Care Visits
Students at Ardeer Primary School pay weekly visits to the residents at aged care home Estia. A different grade visits each week to dance and sing while the residents join in. The children join in with games of bingo and interact with the residents. The residents have also made trips to the school, visiting students and watching them perform concerts.
“It’s a great program where you can take students as young as six and seven and take residents as old as 90 and blend them together” said Diversional Therapist at Estia.
Kindergarten and Child Care visits
Students in Prep-1 develop strong connections with Kellie O' Connell Kindergarten and Glen Gala Children's Centre with visits throughout the year. The program supports the transition of kindergarten aged students to our school and gives the students an opportunity to showcase their learning.
