Wandana Morning Teas
Songfest have previously received funding through the City of Subiaco’s Community Development grants to support the Wandana Community Association to run their Wandana Morning Tea sessions.
This grant helps the committee continue organising and running the fortnightly morning tea social group at the Wandana Apartments. You can learn more about Wandana Apartments and some of the programs running there at www.songfest.com.au/wandanasong
The Wandana apartment building complex was built in 1956 and is famously the first multi-storey block to be built in WA. It has 245 apartments and is now a State Heritage listed building.
The residents at Wandana come from very diverse backgrounds and these fortnightly morning teas minimise the feeling of isolation, support the development of community spirit, and improve wellbeing among residents by creating a socially inclusive atmosphere.
The Wandana morning teas project is one of many making a difference in our communities. If you have a great idea that supports the community, the City of Subiaco would love to hear from you. Visit the Community Development page
for more information.
