Our Active Retirement Group and our Childcare Pre-School Classes come together to share an Easter tradition in Ozanam House:
One of our Easter traditions at Ozanam House is the knitting of the Easter chicks. The Active Retirement Group spent a lot of time making these and much care and attention goes into the process. We then present these to our other chicks, our Childcare pre-school children. This is a great way of getting our most senior and most junior members together. The joy on the children’s faces as they collect their chicks has long been one of our highlights. The Chocolate Egg’s inside probably have something to do with this.
As part of helping the children understand their community, they come together with our Active Retirement Group members, and both groups share stories, the ARG members telling us theirs and the children inspiring us with their own stories! This event was started many years ago and has been given new energy by our current coordinators Freda and Denise our childcare Manager
After the children received their chicks, we had a sing-song with Old McDonald’s farm ringing through the hall. A truly great morning for all of us.
