The big launch…

attitudebookstomlaunchThe Can Do Kids Club was officially launched on 22nd April 2016 at the SPAC theatre thanks to the welcome support of Rosebud Secondary College.

Assistant Principal, Geoff Seletto, spoke on the progress of the Wellness Pavillion being built at the school and we were able to present him with a cheque for the building committee which was possible with support from Hockingstuart Rosebud office.

We had asked Geoff to recommend a student to speak at the event and were blown away by Alex Dellaportas, 2015 School Captain, who spoke about fulfilling one of her dreams in the world of dance. She is an amazing young woman (who later told me that she still had a copy of A for Attitude book which her dad had given her ten years ago!)

The very capable and enthusiastic Peninsula School of Dance students performed a variety of song and dance routines, while students from Yes You Can Sing & Play showed us that they can indeed sing and play!

Parker, aka ‘Captain Happy’ had previously interviewed local real estate agent Adam Alexander, of Hockingstuart, so we were able to play that interview on the big screen much to the delight of all present.

The final routine was a collaboration between PSD and YYCS&P students who performed the Attitude song with great gusto. Thank you again to our sponsors whose valuable support made this event possible and paved the way for more to come.

The second Can Do Kids Community event was hosted with much gratitude to Woodleigh School in Langwarrin Sth.

This time, students from the Frankston community were invited to speak or perform to show their Can Do spirit. The format of this event will be made available for communities all over Australia to draw from when creating their own Can Do Community events.

On 19th August, we were entertained with presentations and performances by:
• Peninsula School of Dance
• Yes You Can Sing and Play
• Fun-Key music
• local Frankston children and youths
• Steve Bastoni, plus
• Grant Denyer interview with Captain Happy (pre-recorded)

Our aim is to make this a National practice — linking and supporting communities around Australia to embrace the Can Do spirit and boost resilience in their children to help them to be their best and to focus on what they Can Do… Watch this space.
