September/October 2019 Update:

What a quarter we’ve had here at Fairhaven! We are so excited to soon be launching our School Leavers Employment Support (SLES) program, in which a small number of current Year 12 students will participate. This program is all about developing the skills and experience to help school leavers manage the transition between school and the workplace. Each program will be tailored to the individual and will include work experience (in open and/or supported employment), assistance with resumes and applications, discussion with others who have been through the transition and more. 

It’s a new program for Fairhaven, and one that fits so well given we started life as a school way back in 1962. What a fabulous couple of months we’ve had here at Fairhaven! In line with our commitment to improving Aboriginal employment and our relationships with local Aboriginal communities, and to coincide with NAIDOC Week, we planned and opened an Aboriginal Art Gallery between the Café and Op Shop in the Point Clare Shopping Village. 

We have much to celebrate in a year that went way too quickly! Our annual Christmas Fair is scheduled for Saturday 7 December and we would love to see the people we support and their families, together with staff and volunteers come along and enjoy the 40+ stalls, entertainment and celebration.

Work equals Fun at Tuggerah!

One of our supported employees at CoPack, Josh Bedford has a great knack for lightening the mood when the workload gets too much sometimes.

This creation of a Fairhaven scarecrow is just one of the cool things Josh does to make his coworkers laugh! Who wore the fluro better? Scarecrow or Josh?

 

Tuggerah Social Club Disco

On Friday September 27, Tuggerah Social Club hosted a disco at The Entrance Baptist Church.

We had a really great turn out, and these nights are especially fun because everyone who attends (staff included) really get to let their hair down with lots of dancing and having a good time.
