Selwyn Centre Coordinators' Day 2017

Wednesday, 26 July, 9:30am – 3:00pm

Selwyn Village theatre, 43 Target St, Point Chevalier, Auckland
We would be delighted if you and a volunteer would join us at the annual Selwyn Centre Coordinators’ Day.      

The theme for this year is Young At Heart.  With this in mind bring your thinking caps for the activities workshop, where you will be given the chance to engage in stimulating conversations, explore new ideas and network with other Selwyn Centre coordinators and volunteers.  

We are excited to have Matthew Hodgson running a mini Forever Young strength and balance exercise class, and Sarah Park from the Auckland Anglican Diocese will present a Boundaries workshop about keeping people safe. There will also be an update on health and safety guidelines.

If you have any queries please us at selwyninstitute@selwynfoundation.org.nz
