BEHIND THE SCENES WITH BASIL: We're a pretty busy workplace employing over 350 fabulous people. There's always something going on - someone coming or going, program updates, policy and procedure changes etc. hence why it's very important for staff to stay in the loop. Yesterday, Basil (our four legged Therapy Assistant) thought he might check in with the Corporate Services team - schmooze executive manager Leah, check that Chloe had processed his timesheet, and have a quick chat with Tim about continuous quality improvement (as you do). Basil also discovered the lovely Ashley from Healthconnx who was onsite consulting with Louise on Stage 2 of our major client software upgrade (TCM); and managed to stay awake while Gary from finance explained the latest version of our Purchasing Policy. It was noted that the team's chocolate stash remained undetected during Basil's visit - as a sniffer dog he's a brilliant therapy assistant! #3pmsugarhitgoesunoticed #TeamGLCH #behindthesceneswithBasil #animalassistedtherapy #gonetothedogs #vicpublichealth #communityhealth #healthconnx ...

Songlines are the oldest living narrative of our nation, and will be the focus for the 2016 NAIDOC Week celebrations. NAIDOC Week 2016 will run from 3-10 July and is an opportunity for all Australians to come together to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait people.

The 2016 theme, Songlines - The living narrative of our nation - will highlight the importance of Songlines to the existence of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, the Dreamtime describes a time when the earth, people and animals were created by our ancestral spiritual beings. They created the rivers, lakes, plants, land formations and living creatures. Dreaming tracks are sometimes called ‘Songlines’ which record the travels of these ancestral spirits who 'sung' the land into life.

The National NAIDOC Committee encourages all Australians to explore and celebrate how, through Songlines, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people remain connected to Country and have been able to maintain and share sacred stories and ceremonies for tens of thousands of years.
