Healesville Thriving Families Workshop

This workshop is for parents and carers who are keen to hear practical strategies, ideas and encouragement on supporting your family to thrive.

 For many families, home is far from a haven from the rush of life.  Instead, it’s a war zone where parents are stretched and often pushed to breaking point.  This leaves many parenting to survive rather than parenting to make their household thrive.  Join Paediatric Occupational Therapist, Hannah Gamble as we explore keys to establishing a positive family culture in your home.  Thriving Families is for all and includes strategies to support siblings of children with additional needs.

 This workshop will explore the ingredients of love, affirmation, and boundaries. You will learn how to parent from your value system, create a calm home environment, foster an attitude of gratitude in your kids, develop family rituals, nurture your own needs, integrate sensory support into each day and much more.

 Presenter:     Hannah Gamble, Paediatric Occupational Therapist

Blessing Bag Creation Night

We are delighted to be hosting our first Blessing Bag Creation Night at our Chirnside Park Hub for 2019!

What happens at a Creation Night?

We have fun! It is a lovely time to come together with like minded people and:

- Make Cards

- Decorate Blessing Bags

- Pack the Blessing Bags

- Help with the Blessing Bag Bracelet Project

Do you need to be a crafty person? No. Not at all! Our Blessing Bags are designed using templates, so as long as you can cut and glue, you are perfect for the job! Or you can pack the bags!

This is a volunteer program but it is essential we know how many are coming. Please click “going” on the SJI Facebook page Blessing Bag Event each month so we can set out enough chairs and supper for everyone. Please note that many use this as a time of respite so we advise that this program is for adults.

SJI Hub is located at 15/286-288 Maroondah Hwy Chirnside Park. It is just behind King Swim!
