Staff, supporters and friends gather to mark the passing of another year in the long and proud history of The Infants' Home.
The Infants' Home's 138th Annual General Meeting was held on May 16, 2013.
The formalities included:
There was a presentation by guest speaker Dr Sandra Wong, from Charles Sturt University, about research that she completed with The Infants’ Home and Dr Fran Press, also from Charles Sturt University.
The findings of that research were compiled into a report called The Art of Integration: Recruiting and Maintaining Staff in Integrated Services.
Recognising outstanding effort from such a large group of dedicated staff is difficult. For the calendar year 2012 the winners were:
Emma Stanton – Community Development Officer
Ana Franco – Director, Rigby House
Gorton House (Vinsensia Christanto, Paromita Sen, Deepa Dasgupta, Karen Dashwood, Nahida Ali, Melissa Woolfrey and Yoshie Sasage)
Thi My Truong – Educator, Robinson House
Johnson House Babies (Cathy Fauth, Yi Deng, Catherine Xu, Frances Hanna, Lisa Riviera and Cindy Tan)
Finally, there was a special moment to acknowledge five long-time Family Day Care educators who were retiring after many years of service.
Shaheen Rauf, Ana Sansone, Cris Doolan, Judith O'Shea and Santana Gois had each provided more than 20 years of care for The Infants’ Home Family Day Care service.
"We are fortunate that three of these women could join us today and we would like them to accept this small gift to acknowledge their contribution to The Infants' Home, to FDC and to the community," said The Infants’ Home CEO, Anita Kumar.
