Day Programs have been keeping very busy exploring beautiful areas around our local district.  Being active out in the community gives are participants a lot of enjoyment. The days seem to go very fast with lots to see and do.  Creating these opportunities to meet individual life goals is very important to the staff supporting our crew.

The smiles on faces tell a thousand words when out working on the farm.  From fencing, working with cattle, picking apples from the apple orchard, helping at sheering time, checking the sheep along with lots more makes for a very busy day.  A farmer’s work is never finished and there is always a lot to do.  Our crew like to keep very busy.

Health and well-being plays a big part in our day to day activities.  Promoting a healthy life style and including this in our programs we find to be very important.  At the same time keeping it exciting for the enjoyment of everyone

Music is a great way to get everyone involved.  From singing, playing drums, playing the bongo, tambourine or guitar even dancing with friends is a great way to build self-confidence.

This program has continued to be very popular for many years with everyone involved getting a lot of satisfaction out of learning to play along with the group.
