From The Wellness Centre:

Shirley Tickelpenny —

Our wish for you is a Merry Christmas and a Safe, Happy and Healthy New Year.

For all students requiring assistance over the holidays please refer back to the last newsletter for agencies that are out in the community. The hardest part is asking for help…. But they are ready and waiting for your call. Holiday periods are not always happy for everyone!

For those like myself leaving, we wish you all the happiness in your future ventures. Aim for the moon, reach for the stars, But…. never forget who you are or where you are from!

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking each and every one of you for the respect you have shown me as your nurse. You have made this position the highlight of my career. For those parents who we also walked beside as ex students. Thank You too, it has been amazing watching the next generation of your families come through and re connecting.

May you all find peace and happiness in your lives
