Communication is crucial in every context.
Here at MWASA, we continually try to communicate in the best way: with each other, with our members and with the community. This means trying new ways of communication and seeing if the new way is effective, clear and inclusive.
Sharing information online is a great way to reach a lot of people with no paper waste. Some of our members, however, don’t have regular and reliable access to technology, or struggle with the cyber skills needed to navigate the online world, or find it easier to read in languages other than English.
As a complementary method of communication, we will be updating the new Info Board located in the foyer in the same way that we post online: flyers, photos, milestones and information regarding daily operations. It has already become a mingling and talking point for the ladies coming in for classes. Look for it next time you’re in the office.
As a bonus, look for the spectacular aerial photo of Wilpena Pound, which is around 5 hours north of Adelaide in the Flinders Ranges. As a complete coincidence but as further evidence of the successful multicultural nature of our organisation, one of our members is from the Adnyamathanha tribe – the first nation people of the Flinders Ranges region.
Also located in the foyer, surrounding the Info Board, is a wide variety of information from community service providers and from the Australian Government. Although most booklets are in English, there are some available in different languages. There is information available on parenting, health issues effecting women, local events and attractions and more – and it is all free to take.
Please take note of our opening hours: 9:30am to 3:30pm Monday to Friday, with the exception of this coming end of year period where we will be closing from Tuesday 24th December and re-opening on Monday 6th January 2020. If coming in to inquire about a specific program, please call our office beforehand on 08 8212 0800, just to make sure that the program coordinator will be free for you. Thankyou.
