e.motion21 Term 4 Newsletter
I can’t think of a better way to start term 4 by reflecting on the successes of recent months, and in particular on events that bring us together…
Thank you all for supporting a successful Motion Picture Awards. The dancers lit up the stage with their performances, bringing joy to audiences…the vibe was awesome!! Our MC and Ambassador, 00-21 Tim Campbell completed his mission with charm and style.
We were thrilled to open in October two new sites, in Highett and Rowville welcoming many new participants and their families and friends.
We launched our documentary Raising The Bar and
coffee table photobook Moving Bodies Moving Boundaries;
both have raised community expectations about what people with
Down syndrome can achieve if they are given the right
environment and opportunities.
As the year starts to draw to a close, I want to say thank you to our team of wonderful volunteers who support us in class at sites, in the office, on committees and on the Board. Everything you do is making a difference to our work and it is valued. Thank you also to our wonderful staff and contract teachers who always go above and beyond. We look forward to celebrating you all and what we have achieved at our volunteer party.
A special thank you to our Family and Friends Committee for their commitment and support. As a result of the Committee’s work we have seen improved communications, processes and effective dissemination of information.
Best wishes to Fiona Hilson, Events and Volunteer Manager as she leaves her role with us, in order to dedicate more time to her family. Fiona has been a valued member of the team in various roles since our first concert at Xavier College in 2010! Though this is not goodbye, as we will continue to see Fiona at events and other functions.
We still have 6 packed weeks of fun left in the term with new dance experiences, performances such as Run Geelong, Knox Carols by Candlelight, International Day of People with a Disability and of course our fabulous end of year celebrations. Look forward to seeing you there!!!
