It’s Confirmed – Kids Love Pizza!

On Monday 3 July we held our Pizza Making Classes for kids in the Firestone Kitchen and Bar within the dining precinct at Revesby Workers’ Club. There is something therapeutic about making your own dough, rolling it out and making pizza from scratch, and all of the kids LOVED IT! We are pretty sure we even have some future star chefs amongst the group! After carefully selecting their preferred ingredients they were then able to taste their creations – all washed down with a cold soft drink.

A big thanks goes out to our Chef’s who also had a ball with the kids, passing on knowledge that they will remember for a lifetime! Stay tuned for more kid’s masterclasses in the future.

Say tuned for some more Masterclass news in August as these sell out very quickly!

Do Something Day

Revesby Workers’ will be giving their best for Do Something Day on Wednesday 19 July with Book It Forward, an initiative encouraging others to give back to the community with a gesture of kindness.

Revesby Workers’ are inviting the community to donate a gently used or new book from 15 June up until Do Something Day in Tarro Ave reception. A collection box will be positioned in the Clubs reception area for donation of books or swap a book with another avid reader.

Following Do Something Day, all books will be donated to a few local community organisations, Bankstown City Aged Care, Local Schools and the ICON Cancer Centre to create a positive and noticeable impact to the lives of others in the community. Revesby Workers’ would love to see the community give back with books at the club.

The Do Something Day campaign aims to drive the community to actively participate in actions of good by donating or volunteering as an individual or an organisation. Revesby Workers’ hopes everyone gets involved by going above and beyond through acts of kindness such as, shouting a stranger a coffee or letting a rushed customer skip the queue or even sharing an umbrella with a stranger.

How will you give your best on Do Something Day?

St Therese School Students Enjoy New Furniture In New Learning Spaces

The students at St Therese School are now learning in comfortable new furniture that was purchased thanks to the annual $3,000.00 donation by Revesby Workers’. The new furniture includes vibrant colours of tables, chairs, booth seats and lounges which create a space for group activities and independent learning.

St Therese School Principle, Jackie Vella is thankful for the generous annual donation and happy to see students making use of the new furniture for better learning.

“The students are enjoying the contemporary learning new furniture as it allows them flexibility in their learning as they can often choose which learning space is best suited to them. It allows the students to work collaboratively which is very important in education today.”

“Providing a contemporary leaning space allows teachers to design, engaging, purposeful and challenging experiences while encouraging students to be critical and creative thinkers, risk-takers and problem solvers.”

Revesby Workers’ Gives $80,000 toward Specialised Equipment for Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital

Revesby Workers Donation - Small 30

Revesby Workers’ have donated $80,751 to multiple wards at Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital allowing doctors and nurses to continue to quickly and accurately treat patients.

Acting Bankstown-Lidcombe General Manager Linda Campbell said patients will be the biggest beneficiaries of the donation which has enabled the purchase of equipment including but not limited to a vein illuminator and a cardiotocography machine (CTG) which enables staff to monitor a baby’s heart rate while their mother is in labour.

“Our midwives use CTG monitoring on a daily basis for mothers or babies who’ve had health problems during pregnancy and the machine assists our staff in listening to a baby’s heartbeat and lets the midwife know if the baby is coping well with labour or is becoming distressed,” she said.

In ambulatory care, Ms Campbell said the vein illuminator lights up veins like a roadmap, making it easier for nurses and doctors to draw blood, insert needles or infuse a patient.

“Patients in ambulatory care, especially those with hard to reach veins are happy about our use of the new vein illuminator. When a vein is reached on the first attempt, it is much more comfortable for patients since they have significantly less pain and swelling, if any, during and after the procedure,” she said.

Mr Dennis Hayward, Director of Revesby Workers’ said he was happy to contribute toward better health outcomes for the local community.

“We are one of the biggest clubs in south western Sydney but our strength is in the local community. Donating equipment to Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital is a great opportunity for Revesby Workers’ Club to support the very people who support us,” he said.

Ms Campbell said the Hospital has always enjoyed great support from local organisations and the wider community.
“We are extremely grateful to Dennis and the team at Revesby Workers’ Club for helping us to continue providing the best care we can for our patients and supporting our staff in doing so,” she said.
