Playing Bingo: History, Rules & Bingo Calls

I'm banned by the residents from using the traditional Bingo calls as they don't like them! They just want to play and take it really seriously. It's a pity but it's their game after all!

Hi Natalie. You are definitely correct in saying that not all training institutions are good! I 'trained' with the Phillips Institute in Carnegie, Victoria. I absolutely do NOT recommend them! Absolute shocker of a place. All about profit, not education.
However, I truly believe that we are born into this job. If your heart is in it, you will succeed. I have, despite having studied with this shonky mob. If you can afford the time, aTAFE institute will provide excellent tuition over a 12 month period. Good luck!

Mother's Day Flowers Craft

Much easier than the "fan-fold" style flowers. The residents were quite frustrated when the tissue paper ripped (even though it doesn't matter) so this technique is so simple and I imagine it wouldn't tear so easily. Thank you!
