Six Koala Kids volunteers undertook the registration process at Monash Health to become regular volunteers at Monash Children’s Cancer Centre. Pixie Cohen, Mandy Mandie, Georgie Landale, Olivia Henderson, Lauren Bowe and Jessica Bucci completed the 60 minute online training as well as the on-site induction program and are looking forward to providing the kids and their families activities, morning tea and other programs.
We are very excited to announce that Koala Kids is now providing a weekly activity at Peter Mac. Koala Kids volunteers Davina Chisik and Emma Barham will facilitate the Wednesday session at the paediatric radiotherapy service clinic with music therapist Steph.
“It will be wonderful for the clinic to have a Koala Kids volunteer present each week. Our music therapist Steph feels very strongly that Koala Kids input supports her music program and will be greatly appreciated by the children and families.” Lisa Forsberg, paediatric nurse coordinator, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre told Koala Kids.
