Today I experienced something I have never experienced before (after a football activity with my son at Point Cook Shopping Centre)
Ondrus Waste Education
It was such a lovely workshop with a very successful attendance. I attended the first session at 1 pm and the room was packed full of kids and parents. Amazing work on a successful workshop and look forward to working further with A Fitting Connection on future workshops and programs.

Thank you very much for the opportunity to speak and for organising the Virtues of Fashion panel discussion.
I really enjoyed being part of the event.
I also thought I would pass on that I got some positive feedback from some of the audience members and from an online participant.
Looking forward to speaking at the Saturday clothes swap day this week. See you then.
