World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2018

Children from The Patch Primary School have helped create a video for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, as part of a Yarra Ranges Council project.

The video features poems written and spoken by Council’s Positive Ageing Reference Group, about the isolation and negativity people feel while experiencing elder abuse.

Earlier this year, students read these poems and discussed the issue in a workshop, before drawing specific parts of the poems. These drawings were then animated by local animator, Al MacInnes.
