THE young and young at heart came together last week in a program designed to bridge the generational gap.
Seniors from the Merri Outreach Support Service and Year 5 students from Westgarth Primary School participated in show-and-tell, designed balloon hats, and played with cute critters in the inaugural Creating Intergenerational Connections event.
Merri Outreach case manager John Price said the day was a great success.
“This was just a pilot program to see whether the kids and seniors could bridge the gap,” he said.
“And they did, which was fantastic.”
Mr Price said he hoped to hold the events more often into the future.
