"We like the boys to feel at home and we look for opportunities to find common interests, bringing them together with things like house traditions and celebrations. We have snacks, house clothing, decorations for special occasions and we celebrate successes together. We encourage the boys to be positive role models and to take charge of planning house activities to develop responsibility and leadership skills." - Houseparent Andrew Hopkins
What we like to do
We like hanging out together – we have wings on Friday nights, sushi nights, BBQs and we bake cookies. You'll find us playing chess and retro GameCube games like Starfox and Mario Brothers. We always celebrate birthdays with cake.
