The Townsville Chinese Club Inc. (TTCCI) started the Senior Art and Craft classes in February 2017. The aim of the class is to provide a platform for the senior to gather and socialise. Research has shown that social gathering is important for maintaining a active mind and body. This is especially true for Senior and retirees.
On every Thursday at 11am, we gather for activities including but not limited to art and craft, exercise, baking, singing, dancing and information sessions. In this class, not only we learn, the seniors are encouraged to share their expertise and passion. This give them an opportunity to give and feel self worthy. We make cards, vase, bracelets, origami; recycle t-shirt, bottle, golf ball; bake and cook; sing English, Chinese, Indonesian songs; dance and so on.
Every Thursday we learn a little, give a little, exercise a little and have lots of fun and laughter! Come and join us! This project is supported by Townsville City Council’s Community Macro Grant.
Cost: Free for TTCCI members; $10 per session for non-members.
