And on Sunday we went to Coogee Beach for part 3 of our Connecting Communities program. Thanks to Dooleys for the buses that took us there and to Kids Giving Back for organising such a great program when we got there. Families from South Sudanese and Somali backgrounds enjoyed an outing to the beach that included a water safety session and time in the water with members of the Coogee SLSC. We had a great time at the beach!
