Intergenerational Fun

For everyone who enjoys the ABC’s Old People’s Home for Four Year Old’s TV show, check out the video on our Facebook Page HERE of our residents and children from Discover My World Early Learning Centre exercising together- you’ll love it.

As part of our Intergenerational program, a group of young Pioneers from Discover My World Early Learning Centre joined the Tuesday morning Zumba Gold class with fitness instructor Emma Watts from the Daisie Chain.  Zumba Gold is held at Moran Engadine twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays.  It is one of the many lifestyle and wellness activities available for residents.  Mary Gibbs, General Manager said – “These classes have been a big hit, anyone can join in, residents, families, staff and of course our little friends from DMW.”

The Intergenerational program has been a popular part of the lifestyle and wellness program at Moran Engadine for several years now and it continues to go from strength to strength. Isabel Rafidi, Discover My World, ELC Director says ”The special partnership we have with Moran Engadine gives both children and residents the opportunity to connect, build relationships and learn from one another – our Pioneers love visiting the Nans & Pops”.
