Hannah, a 25-year-old Gloriavale leaver, and Liz Gregory, General Manager of the 'Gloriavale Leavers’ Support Trust' addressed the members and several visitors regarding life in and after Gloriavale. It was a very thorough and at times confrontational presentation with many questions afterward. We ran out of time. There are probably several members and visitors with many more questions.
Hannah left the Gloriavale School at 16 and was employed as part of a team to make the bread, light the fires and do the laundry for the 600 residents. She arrived at her work between 3-4 am daily and had a half-hour break occasionally.
It is all about Space next week with Peter and Janet Russell speaking of their visit to Mission Control in Houston and the Kennedy Space Centre.
Have a good weekend.
Thanks, Bev.
