On Tuesday the 28th August the residents from Mary MacKillop had the opportunity to compete with Magdalene high school students in a shoot and shuffle competition. The event was filmed by Channel 7 News and it appear in the local news paper next week.
The residents thoroughly enjoy participating in shoot and shuffle weekly at Mary MacKillop using their skills and maintaining their hand and eye coordination. The residents were a great challenge for the students and it came down to the wire. Both teams were neck and neck and then a Magdalene student hit one of Carrington’s pucks off the board to give Magdalene the win and the trophy.
The residents described the day as wonderful and exciting and they look forward to the next challenge for a chance to win the trophy- we are hoping to make this a regular occurrence with Magdalene students.
Many thanks to Steve and Andrew Mortimer from Australian Shuffleboard who organised, ran and refereed the competition.
Thank you also to Magdalene High School for their hospitality and ongoing support in bridging the gap between generations.
