Residential staff paint trees to represent our whakapapa
Residential staff came together on Friday 13 October to create some art work in the homes. Due to the nature of shift work, the only time we are all together as a team is for Professional Development in the holidays. Often these days are taken up with training, planning and policy/procedures so it was great to have the opportunity to be creative.
Each year we have students come and go and Sarah came up with the idea to paint trees in each house to represent our whakapapa. Students will create a photoframe with an individual picture and these will be hung on the tree to represent their time here at van Asch. There is also a tree in Stevens House where current staff will be displayed on a branch.
This was not only a great team building experience, but great to see the artistic flair of staff members. Watch this space for pictures of the decorated trees.
