Paper planes

There are more and more clients from Arcare North Shore joining in each month when the Petit Early Learning Centre come to visit.

The children bring with them books, crafts, playdough and colouring in for the North Shore Community to help them with.

During a recent visit, Jack and Bert taught the eager children how to make paper planes.

Arcare Aged Care North Shore Bert And Joan

Bert and Joan

Bert and Joan Mooney met at a tennis game in the city just after World War II.

Joan was born and raised in Townsville and worked as a clerk for the Adelaide Steam Ship Company, while Bert was a carpenter in the air force.

They moved from Townsville to Atherton Tablelands, but returned for some more support.

For Joan, the extensive lifestyle calendar is one of the things she enjoys most about Arcare North Shore, particularly enjoying indoor bowls, high tea and meditation.
