Yarra Week 5 2018
Week five was a special week on the program as we celebrated Leilas 16th Birthday!
We started the week back at Yarra Youth Services to partake in a Hiphop workshop. We met with the talented Motley and got straight into the dynamics of music and how to write it. After a demonstration from Motley and a discussion on themes, the young people were off and writing their own raps. It was admirable to see how open the young people were to this task and how honest they were with their words. We left the service with our raps in hand and
feeling excited for tomorrow. The second half of the day was spent outside in the sun at Collingwood Children's Farm. At the farm we met with Toni who lead us to a shady spot to weed and clear a walkway. After working hard in the sun/shade we fed the pigs and goats and went home tired but with a sense of pride in the work we had done.
The final day of this week was spent on the river practising our canoeing skills for next weeks camp. We picked up the kids at 8:45 and headed straight to the river to met with Kelto. Once there we we went over safety tips, how to paddle and jumped in the canoes. It was a day that challenged all of us in different ways and set us up well for next weeks camp.
