Women’s health was in the spotlight at a Dandenong South community forum.
The Community Hubs at the Dandenong South and Springvale Rise primary schools joined on Thursday 14 September to hold a women’s health and wellbeing conference.
The event at Dandenong South included sessions with an art therapist and information on emotional wellbeing, exercise and nutrition.
There was also an animal farm and craft activities for preschool-aged children.
Springvale Rise Primary School Community Hub co-ordinator Melanie Mumford said the best part of the day was seeing the participants being so happy.
“And the feedback seemed to be overwhelmingly that it was useful, practical information and that it was a day that was promoting everybody’s sense of wellbeing,” she said.
“We had 57 women sign in.
“We thought that was a pretty excellent attendance.
“It was fantastic to have it as a collaboration between the two schools and certainly something we’re super keen to try again soon.”
