Making the most of lockdown


October 14, 2021

There is beauty in everything (yes, even lockdown!), but not everyone sees it. However, some Sunnyfield clients did see the beauty, turning their lockdown into a positive experience by making the most of their additional time at home to broaden their education, master new hobbies, or connect with their housemates in creative ways.

Honing Skills for Life during lockdown

Helen, Andrew and Jordan used the extra time at home efficiently, enhancing their education through the Skills for Life Program. Over six weeks, Sunnyfield Support Worker, Phil, worked closely with the trio on Budgeting and Numeracy. Their tenacity and hard work paid off as they successfully completed the course. Their lockdown highlight was celebrating their achievements with a certificate ceremony at their home.

Maintaining routine and good habits

During the temporary closure Mt Druitt SLES Student, Shyan, was determined to finish his numeracy and literacy tasks by continuing his learning at home. Shyan’s consistent learning allowed him to quickly adjust back into his routine once the SLES program resumed. He has been advancing swiftly through his Supported Employment work experience, building excellent time management skills.

Saturday night fever


Sea Breeze House residents bonded together over planning creative weekend events. On one Saturday, they boogied their lockdown blues away with an at-home disco. Deciding on a 60s theme, residents all helped decorate their home, dressed the part and played a series of games with prizes.

Why dine out, when you can dine in


Blue House residents Greg, Gavin and Jimmy used their lockdown time to practise and develop their cooking skills. They each took turns, learning to follow a recipe and cooking a complete meal for the other residents. Their favourite part was eating together and enjoying each other’s delicious concoctions.
