Catherine Thompson


Supported Worker

Hello, my name is Catherine and I have worked at Happy Valley Community Children’s Centre since 2001. I began as a volunteer straight from school and now I am a permanent part-time employee. I am also on a supported wage. I work in the Junior Room on a Wednesday and the Kinder Room on a Thursday. I perform a number of duties, including the laundry, but my favourite is playing with the children. I love helping them, especially at lunchtime and when they have their naps. I love all the children. Outside of work, I also volunteer for the Uniting Church in an op shop and cafe. I am a passionate Crows supporter and am involved in many activities with Down Syndrome SA. I like to Ten Pin bowl, rock and roll, cook and do Aqua Zumba. I have a boyfriend and six nieces and nephews, and my family is very important to me. I look forward to meeting your children and having fun with them.
