Moorelands’ hub – Jan 18th 2016 – lunar landscapes and strawberry crepes…

There’s a lot going on at Moorelands right now…

Moorelands City Programs are back in full swing after the Holidays. BLAST Gateway kids have been polishing their cooking skills making delicious strawberry crepes. YUM!

Teaching our participants valuable life skills such as cooking is an important part of Moorelands’ programming.  At Moorelands, we know it’s vital that our kids not only have fun but learn transferable skills that prepare them to thrive in the wider world.  Through the process of making crepes our kids learned basic cooking skills and also developed the positive character qualities of sharing, responsibility and fairness. Check out the gallery:At Moorelands BLAST Grenoble, jettisoned by super charged imaginations, our participants have been exploring lunar landscapes!  In this dual science and craft activity, BLAST kids experimented to create craters and learn about the landscape of the moon.

Team work is an important leadership quality and activities at Moorelands are structured to help kids build team work skills and positive peer relationships. Take a quick look at the mini-videos below to see how participants collaborated to build ideas and craft their landscapes.Last week, Moorelands had the opportunity to celebrate some of our long-standing office volunteers over a delicious homemade soup lunch.  Moorelands is so very grateful to all our volunteers who make our work possible.

Our Baby Bundle program simply would not run without the work of Diane (who has been volunteering with us for a whopping 16 years) and Carol (who has been volunteering with Moorelands for a staggering 20 years!). These ladies frequently come into the office to sort through the generous donations from our donors and prepare bundles for distribution.

We also could not manage without the work of Eleanor (who supports the Development Team with mail outs), Ricardo (who’s been helping with the Moorelands’ website) and Jaleel (who volunteers at our Youth LED program).

To all of you and the many, many other Moorelands Volunteers: THANK YOU!Finally, we’re so pleased to welcome three new staff to the Moorelands’ Office this week! Mike, Jodi and David took up their positions on Monday morning and were brimming with enthusiasm! Mike will be taking on the role of Programs Coordinator; Jodi will be our Interim City Programs Manager and David will be our new Assistant Director of Moorelands Camp. Welcome to the team you three!Have a great week!
