Angel Archives - 16/06/2023
Rock Week wrapped, Rap Week on the horizon - We've had a blast exploring different styles of music and next week is no exception. We'll be listening and dancing to Rap, highlighting different styles and artists.
Precious Angels have capacity! We are in a position to welcome some new families into our care. If you know a family looking for amazing carers, please send them our way.
SCHOOL HOLIDAYS – We are one week away from School Holidays (school ends Friday 23 June and resumes Monday 10 July). Can you please start letting us know what supports you will need over the school holidays. The Castle will again open its doors for Vacation Care Fun, with lots of fun filled activities, games and outings in planning!
Precious Angels are searching for a new respite home. We are finding this difficult still, so if you know of anyone looking for good, reliable tenants, please let us know
Emails for Respite and Rosters – Please send all emails for care/rostering to firstname.lastname@example.org (please continue to cc: admin mailbox while we introduce the new mailboxes)
Please note, we will not be using the respite email address

From the desk of Amanda:
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Mid-Term NDIS Registration Audit. Our auditors advised us those who were contacted had lots of lovely things to say. We continue to focus on continuous improvement and staff training, to ensure we meet the needs of our Angel Families.
School ends Friday 23 June - that is NEXT FRIDAY. Apple and Kayla are planning lots of adventures, games and activities to keep our Castle and Respite Crews engaged and excited!
We have availability for Respite, but as we have yet to secure a respite home, that availability is limited, so please book ASAP to avoid disappointment.
We are in the process of having all of our exisiting Service Agreements and Individual Support Plans updated and resigned, as our Auditor has asked us to to this annually. Thank you to those families who have already completed these. Dillon, Rob and I will be happy to come and visit with you to assist you with anything should you need it.
Its great to see photos coming in from our Mackay Branch! We Brisvegans are jealous of the apparent eternal warm weather.
On behalf of all of Precious Angels, I'd like to share our love and thoughts with Gabby's family - her mother Leigh, her sister Helayna and her step-father Paul - during this difficult time. Gabby has been with Precious Angels for just over 3 years, and is deeply loved by so many. Much love to you all.
Coming up at The Castle
We were excited to celebrate Ethan C's birthday this week at The Castle! Ethan chose a Disney theme and he had a great time with the Castle Crew. Lily loves giving presents, and Ethan loved receiving it! We enjoyed our 1980's theme dress up days, had fun listening to all the 80s classic songs and dancing like no one's watching. The best kind of dancing.
We discovered that Ethan C is as tall as Angel Martin!
Caleb had fun dismantling an old bike we had in storage while learning about safe tool usage, and Enoch showed his Speechy how well he is enjoying his thickened fluid intake.
Out with the Brisbane Angels
We love being out and about, making smiles and making memories. Exploring the world with participants really is its own reward when you see how much they enjoy it. Featuring Trinity, Enoch, Caleb and both the Ethans!
Out with Mackay Angels
We've had a few photos from up in Mackay this time round and it's simply fantastic! We just adore letting participants explore sensory activities to their hearts content.
Andy's getting into some goo, Kaitlyn's been dressing up and Charlotte's out enjoying the sun and nature (silly lorikeet, chippies aren't for you), what more could you ask for?
Photo of the Week
This fortnight's winner features Caleb at one of his favourite parks. Dubbed 'Lizard Park' ......here's to the Lizard King!
