Cultures on display

More brilliant Harmony Day celebrations were hosted recently at our St Judes aged care home, with staff and residents alike dressing up and participating in a parade that showcased the many different cultures of those in our community.

As part of the festivities, those in attendance got the opportunity to learn how to say ‘hello’ in each different native language, an exercise that was enjoyed by all (we probably need to work on our pronunciation, though)!
