Aurrum Healesville residents welcomed interesting visitors recently when the Melbourne Museum came to their home. The Museum brought a selection of fossils and replica dinosaur bones with them. Krystal from the Museum bought in some amazing things for the excited audience, including a life-size dinosaur leg, sea creatures, a massive tooth and claw. The residents commented how heavy the articles were to hold and the real thing must have been so much heavier.
Krystal shared the theory behind how dinosaurs became instinct and how their remains survived for so many millions of years, which everyone found fascinating.

The residents enjoyed participating in singing traditional carols, as well as the opportunity to learn new ones. Students were delighted to see Santa make a surprise appearance (alias resident- Donald) who gave the students candy canes. After the performance, the students encouraged residents to have a go on the drums and their expressions were priceless. ... See MoreSee Less
