Students visits to Tanby Hall Aged Care

As part of our Service Learning component of the mid-week Tutorial program, students pay weekly visits to Tanby Hall Aged Care Facility in Coollingup or sometimes the residents visit us at Tranby. So far, the students have been outstanding in their approach towards the residents and their role as volunteers at Tanby. It has been reported that the Year 9 students who have elected to participate in this activity demonstrate understanding and compassion towards the residents.

They engage in a range of multi generational activities such as puzzles, word searches, board games and more. More importantly, it is a unique opportunity for both parties to learn from each other and share stories. These stories help our students to gain an understanding and appreciation of life in days' of old, while our students offer their modern perspectives on life.
