Community Care services training
The Greek Orthodox Community Care Services organised an Annual Volunteer Training and Information Session followed by a Christmas Lunch in honour of the GOCSA Community Care Volunteers on the 9th of December 2020. The event was well attended by approximately 60 Community Care volunteers, who livened up the Olympic Hall with their presence.
The first part of the event, which lasted 3 hours, included the following presentations:
• Manual Handling: presenter Vanessa Girasoli, Occupational Therapist at the Ridleyton Greek Home for the Aged.
• Food Safety – presenter Vicky Kanakaris, Multicultural Learning Development Coordinator, Multicultural Aged Care.
• Infection control information Session – presenter Vicki Kanakaris, Multicultural Learning Development Coordinator, Multicultural Aged Care.
• Information Session about My Aged Care – presenter Marianthi Kosmarikou, GOCSA Community Care Services.
After the Training and Information Sessions, one of the volunteers, Mrs Koula Tzintzinioti, read a poem written by her about the volunteers’ valuable contribution to the community.
Then, Mr Vasilios Gonis OAM, President of the Greek Orthodox Community, addressed the audience and expressed his sincere thanks to all our hardworking volunteers. Mr Gonis laid emphasis on the significant support and contribution of the volunteers to the community, even during such a hard period as the past year. The President continued his speech with the wish that 2021 will be a better year than 2020 and that we will all be able to continue working creatively together towards the further growth and improvement of our community. Lastly, Mr Gonis encouraged the audience to face these challenging times with prudence and vigilance.
Mr Gonis’ speech was followed by a Christmas lunch in honour of the volunteers. The event concluded in a festive atmosphere with the volunteers’ choir and the Community Care Services staff singing the traditional Greek Christmas carols.
