‘Green’ day at Mercy Place

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

THERE were no leprechauns or sham­rocks to be seen but that did not stop se­niors at Mercy Place Lathlain from cel­e­brat­ing St Pa­trick’s Day in style on Fri­day.

The day in­cluded a tra­di­tional jig per­formed by lo­cal Ir­ish dancers, fol­lowed by an af­ter­noon ‘green’ theme happy hour with some spe­cially pre­pared food and bev­er­ages.

Mercy Place Lathlain act­ing ser­vice man­ager Surabh Nair said the or­gan­i­sa­tion had a fo­cus on en­sur­ing res­i­dents par­tic­i­pate in fun, so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and gen­er­ally find joy in their ev­ery­day lives.

“The res­i­dents in­volved did not do many jigs them­selves, but they def­i­nitely got into the ‘green’ spirit and the mu­sic,” he said, adding that St Pa­trick’s Day gave the or­gan­i­sa­tion a rea­son to cel­e­brate the cul­tural di­ver­sity of its staff and res­i­dents at Mercy Place Lathlain.
