VET Community Services students have been working closely with children from Jenny’s Early Learning Centre as part of the ‘Engaging Clients’ aspect of their course.

Last week they ran activities for the children at the centre; today they helped facilitate a tour of the Women’s Health Centre at Bendigo Health.

Students were present while a mother bathed her newborn baby, then were taken on a tour of the Birthing Suites where Clinical Support Midwife, Lyn, showed off the state of the art equipment and explained how and why it is used.

The BSSC students will return with the children from Jenny’s ELC in a fortnight to visit the Children’s Ward.

The aim of the visits is to help children feel comfortable and safe within a hospital environment.
