Bernie's Bench is unveiled

On Thursday 30 April, children, staff and members of the management committee, along with a number of parents, gathered at Salem to unveil the beautiful garden seat that will have a home in the Salem playground.Red and white were the dominant colours, in memory of bernie's favourite footy team, the Sydney Swans.

Bernie Miles was tghe director of Salem for just two years, but in that short time endeared herself to parents, children and staff members as a caring and gifted manager of the centre. Bernie lost her battle with cancer when she died in June 2014. To commemorate her life, Bernie's husband, Greg, agreed that donated money would be used to erect a memorial seat as a continual reminder of the place Bernie had in our hearts.
