Eastern Health Closing the Gap Workshop

‘I am writing to thank you and your team following the Eastern Health Closing the Gap workshop at Worawa last week. It is such a beautiful setting, with not only the wonderful views to the hills, but also the fantastic artwork in the seminar area itself. The room was perfectly set up and we loved the delicious catering. Everyone was so friendly – we had a great experience at Worawa’.

Ethiopian Dignitary visits Worawa

Worawa was honoured to have a visit from the Archbishop of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. His eminence Abune Melksedek was accompanied by a number of delegates from Canada, New Zealand and Australia. The Archbishop had been involved in establishing a number of schools for Ethiopian children and was particularly  interested to visit Worawa and spoke of programs that could bring together Aboriginal and Ethiopian young people. The visit was arranged by Elder Aunty Lillian Tamiru and her husband Addis.  Aunty Lillian is the daughter of Pastor Sir Douglas Nicholls who was the founding Patron of Worawa.
