New Care Manager at Parata Anglican Charitable Trust

Mary Pullar —

Last Thursday Peter Hargest, the Parata Anglican Charitable Trust Chair announced that Alisha McColl has been appointed as Care Manager of Parata.

Peter thanked Jan McKeown for her stewardship as Acting Manage through 2021 and wished her well while she takes a break to enjoy her grandchildren.

Jan’s plan is to return to Parata in a casual role in a few months’ time.

Jan’s last day as Acting Manager will be Friday 15 October – Alisha has been completing some familiarisation this week.

A huge ‘thanks’ to Jan for all her care, support and leadership.

For those who do not know Alisha, she has grown up around Parata as her mother Pam has been a Night Nurse at Parata for over 30 years; Alisha joined Parata as an After School and Holiday job about 15 years ago.

Alisha is a Registered Nurse and has a very strong background in Age Care.

On Tuesday 12 October there was a ‘Changing of the Guard’ and Blessing (Chaplin, Lois Shallard) to farewell Jan and welcome Alisha.

We welcome Alisha back to Parata.
