For the past four years, Caroline Springs RSL Sub Branch has supported selected students from Lakeview Senior College, Caroline Springs, to attend the annual Lord and Lady Somers Camps.

Held alongside the beach in the beautiful natural landscape of Somers, 90 kms south east of Melbourne, the camps offer fantastic opportunities for young people to develop their leadership skills, courage and persistence. They build friendships and learn invaluable skills and strategies that can be applied directly in their academic and personal lives when they return home.

When we first met Alain Nguyen and his wife Simone in 2015, they were excited to be building their first home in Modeina. Fast forward to 2020 and they are about to commence building their second home in Modeina – a double-storey home to accommodate their growing family!

“Now that we have two boys, aged five and two, we decided that we would like to upgrade to a bigger block and a larger home,” Alain shares. “But actually doing this in the middle of a pandemic certainly made everything a bit more stressful!”

All over the world, teddy bears have begun appearing in front gardens and windows and chalk rainbows have been materialising on suburban pathways, creating fun and adventure for little people in their neighbourhoods.

It is just one of the imaginative ways that communities are maintaining a sense of social connection despite social distancing during COVID-19 restrictions.
