Thank you for the super calendar of events. Avast, me hearties, you forgot to include 19th September - International Talk like a Pirate Day. Great day for dressing up in Pirate gear.

We did Talk like a Pirate Day last year! The residents really got into it. Talking like a pirate is fun -savvy?
My team all dressed up as pirates and residents wore eye patches (cut out printed paper and elastic) and temporary tattoos.
We marked the day with pirate quizzes, a wheelchair sword fight (foam), changed our Aussie flag to the jolly roger, watched the movie 'Pirates of the Carribbean' and sang some rollicking sea shanties. What shall we do with that drunken’ sailor?! The day concluded with a swashbuckling outdoor party complete with rum balls and a cursed pirate ship (cardboard & crepe paper) for residents to destroy with cannon balls (wet newspaper). Arrrrr!
