With newfound self-esteem and confidence, a group of young women
with disabilities will take a big step closer to their goal of
entering the workforce thanks to 'Work… My Way'; an initiative from
Karingal's BacLinks program to be held on Thursday February 27.
At 5:30am on Thursday 23 January, 22
extremely keen golfers teed off in the Karingal Hundred Hole Hike
(HHH) Down-under; making it the largest official event of its kind
in the world!
Congratulations to all involved in the hugely successful
Hundred Hole Hike and Music to a Tee.
When Karingal participant Sharyn Lyons began work placement at
Tate Street Primary School in Geelong as part of her Certificate I
in Work Education course, she didn't realise that it might help her
decide on a career path in childcare.
When you hear Maddie Pearson's story, it is easy to understand
why her mother says she is 17 going on 30.
Five Karingal participants have moved into their new homes in
the heart of Hastings on the Mornington Peninsula.
There was plenty of grooving, shaking, twisting and twirling as
guests danced the night away at the All Abilities Dinner Dance.
Wet and windy conditions meant it felt more like winter than
summer but that didn't stop more than 250 people from soaking up a
great time at the 2013 Summer Workplace Big Day Out.
