Conversations ‘Connect Communities’
We have found intergenerational conversations to be one of our favourite activities because it demonstrates the basic core of the I Wish I'd Asked concept – intergenerational conversations. Silver Warriors and Apprentices alike, have embraced this old fashioned pastime and one student was heard to say, ‘it’s awesome to hear the Silver Warriors’ stories – so interesting because they have been through a lot, and I am learning so much.’
See Us in Action
In this video, our Apprentices talk with Vietnam Veteran and President of the Shepparton RSL, Bob Wilkie. They discuss Bob’s return to Australia post war and what it was like at that time for returning servicemen.
The Silver Warriors are equally taken with the contact and a young Warrior of 94 exclaimed, ‘these young people are just marvellous. Marvellous!‘.
