Notice regarding the Mindfulness Sessions



Due to this ever-changing and challenging environment because of the outbreak of Covid-19, the face to face Mindfulness sessions are being cancelled.  Many apologies for the inconvenience to anyone who turned up at the last one.


However, given that Mindfulness has both physical and psychological benefits, the chances are that the sessions will resume via video conferencing to assist staff in managing the many changes and restrictions we are all facing. It will be endeavored to offer weekly sessions instead of fortnightly. So please watch this space for further details.

A few nice gestures to post out for staff who may not be aware of these during these busy times. 

Here's the current list:

  • McDonald's is providing free coffee and soft drinks for Healthcare workers.

  • Coles is extending its the first hour of trade (7.00 - 8.00 am Tuesdays and Thursdays) for elderly and disabled citizens to Healthcare workers. Show your Staff ID or wear your uniform.

  • Amazon Prime is providing free access to kids and family content. All you need is an account which is also free!

  • Nando's is offering 50% off orders for Healthcare and Emergency staff until 17 April. Arrive in uniform or show your staff ID to redeem the 'Heroes get hungry' offer.
