Residents at Manly Vale love to read and so the team decided to celebrate book week with a library trolley full of books for residents to choose from.
A small group of keen readers had a wonderful discussion about their passion for reading, followed by trivia on bestselling books and authors. Team members distributed books and magazines to residents who enjoyed relaxing with a cup of tea.
Our poetry group has been extremely popular since the start of 2020 and our residents have read a collection of poems by Banjo Paterson and others, including some fantastic limericks. Nursery rhymes have brought back pleasant childhood memories.
This lovely session concluded with singing the French and Dutch National Anthems and poems by C.J. Dennis.
The reading sessions at Manly Vale have been extremely engaging and have since taken a prime spot in our lifestyle calendar!
