On Friday 24th January, Arcare Taigum held their Australia Day celebrations.
Team members and clients dressed in Aussie colours, with the lounge and dining rooms decorated for the long weekend.
Clients were treated to lamingtons for morning tea, followed by an Australian-themed concert performed by the Jam Dropz.
Clients sang loudly and clapped along to the tunes, truly getting into the Aussie spirit.
After the concert, the clients had worked up an appetite and were ready for their Aussie Day meal.
For lunch, they enjoyed a BBQ and some pavlova for dessert.
Team members at Arcare Taigum didn’t miss out too!
They were treated to a team bbq to celebrate Australia Day, complete with rissoles, sausages, salads and pavlova for sweets.
