Emotional response to program that brings young and old together.CHALPAT SONTI November 29, 2012 4:37am
Young and old alike took part in an emotional morning in Seymour last week.
The occasion was part of the Seeds of Justice program, undertaken by Year 10 students at St Mary’s College at Barrabill House and Karingal.
It involved students visiting a ‘‘friend’’ each week and culminated with a presentation of DVDs from the students to each of their friends, in the form of a life story and visual diary.
The DVDs were beautifully produced by the students and contained humour and seriousness.
‘‘She married three times and none of them were any good,’’ was the comment that got the most laughs at Barrabill.
But there was also remembrance at the passing of resident Ian Overend. His St Mary’s friends paid him a visual tribute that left many wet eyes in the house.
