HSFA Drama Club’s Road to Mecca

HSFA Drama Club’s Road to Mecca

The HSFA’s Drama Club (made up of enthusiastic residents of the HSFA) enjoyed the powerful classic South African Drama – ‘The Road to Mecca’ by Athol Fugard at The Playhouse Theatre on Sunday. Definitely a few tears were shed by the audience with some of the play’s resonating themes. The elaborate stage set was very impressive. Thanks to the team and excellent actors from The Playhouse.

Drama Workshops for HSFA

Drama Workshops for HSFA

March and April were months full of drama at the HSFA! So when our residents were saying “Break a Leg” this did not mean that next step meant a hip or knee replacement, but rather a moment of glory on stage!!
All units (Independent Living, Assisted Living and Frailcare) were invited to join drama workshops as presented by two lovely ladies, Coleen van Staden and Celia Musikanth from Circle Productions Cape Town . Howls of laughter and impassioned shouting was heard in the halls of the units with our residents acting out Shakespeare’s most rude lines (sometimes translated into Afrikaans!) Movement and mime were practiced, and character sketches as well as poems were rolled out. Thank you to the lovely drama teachers who showed us how many theatrical players, tuneful singers, and drama queens we actually have at the HSFA! Watch this space – HSFA HAS TALENT will be back with a vengeance!
Oasis Collaboration builds skills

Oasis Collaboration builds skills

The HSFA is a firm believer in skills and capability development of our own staff and of future carers, in order to offer the best service to our residents and the elderly community. The HSFA and OASIS Training Centre – PTY Ltd have collaborated allowing their training centre students an opportunity to do the practical part of their course at the HSFA. OASIS students were placed at the HSFA to job-shadow our carers, as part of their 6-week practical training, during their 3-month course. These students were allocated shifts, and job-shadowed and learnt practical caring with our HSFA carers. As part of the practical training, they had to learn specific caring tasks, as per their curriculum, in order to graduate. We are proud to laud the hardworking students of the first program with us at their graduation, and now welcome a new set of students in the second!

HSFA Supports Helderberg Hospice at Golf Day

HSFA Supports Helderberg Hospice at Golf Day

Golf Days that support a worth cause is a win-win situation – a good way to support a charity and a great way to end a week! Some of the Exec team and Board of the HSFA played in a four-ball at the recent Helderberg Hospice Golf Day! Thank you Helderberg Hospice for a well-organised event and we were delighted to support with a water and drinks stand for the golfers. Watch this space for the next Golf Day in support of the HSFA (Helderberg Society For the Aged) on 7th Oct 2022.
