KOALA Kids Volunteer Book Club Coordinator
The launch night was the first opportunity for patients and families to come along and get a feel for how the clinics will run and to unveil our new adolescent space.
Thank you also for the wonderful DVD and magazine contributions to the AYA room. KOALA Kids support and contributions helped us provide a fun, relaxing and inviting environment for our patients. This night was the first of our six month pilot program to trial these AYA specific clinics so we are very excited for the ones to come!

We had a beautiful KOALA Kids Book Club this morning with the children at MCCC.
With my able assistant, Toby McMullin, aged 10 years, we read several Christmas themed Picture Books to the children.
We loved Corinne Fenton’s ‘Hey Baby, it’s Christmas!’. With every page turned the children had to guess the name of the animal, which was great fun.
We also read ‘Deck the Shed with Bits of Wattle’ and sang along. We also enjoyed reading ’True Blue Santa’ by Anne Mangan, illustrated by Kim Fleming, ‘Little Dog and the Christmas Wish’ a new book from Corinne Fenton and Robin Cowcher and ‘The Smallest Christmas Gift’ by Peter H.Reynolds which was hilarious.
We were very busy and we all compiled our ‘Christmas Lists’ for Santa before we decorated fabulous plywood Christmas decorations of Santa, his reindeer and Christmas Angels.
Lucas, Ryan and Stanley also enjoyed making 3D felt Christmas Trees that then they all decorated.
Thank you so much for having us MCCC. Merry Christmas!’
