BOARDING PARTY FOR MS QUEEN VICTORIA BEING ASSEMBLED. NADIA – GIVES THE “Nod” TO WALK THE PLANK.

FOF QV16SB-CN9-15 Z1   The majestic cruise ship is plying the oceans of the world leaving the likes of exotic places like Rio De Janeiro and the Amazon river in her wake. FOCUS FORCE KWC Nadia K has accepted the JUNIOR OFFICIAL AMBASSADOR BADGE to meet and greet the Commodore of the Cunard fleet aboard the ship. Her role will be to present him and the Event Manager with a collection of FLASH Of FRIENDSHIP postcards commemorating the liners maiden visit to Kangaroo Island just on a year ago. Nadia who will be joined by her parents, FF KWC CHIEF CHOICEMAKER Dr. Pete Marshall and her grandchildren. The party will be rounded off by FOCUS FORCE KWC Project Coordinator. She most likely put a foot wrong and fall off the gangplank, but we’re sure she will make a splash in other ways. And there’s every chance she will get to tour the ship, and do her own foto shoot.  We will be looking forward to seeing that.

About focusfor

The FOCUS FORCE photographic workshop program for Kids With Cameras is based in Melbourne, Australia. The projects have gone beyond the Victorian borders, into New South Wales, and Tasmania.Through others including a backpacker it has been provided to children in Thailand, and a teacher in Portugal has inspired children there as well. Apart, from the fun of learning about the camera and developing the skill of taking better photos; the best of which are raised to the status of SUPER SHOTS,the works have been mounted as collections under the banner of the FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITIONS, and sent as gifts of friendship and goodwill to the United States, Italy, Japan, China - others are still being worked on. The program enrciches the children's knowledge, and as a side benefit makes them more aware of their own surroundings,and all that is to value where they live. Then comes the delight of being achievers, and having their self esteem boosted by their successes.The term "kids with cameras" was first used by the program's forerunner; CLICKER - the "club for kids with cameras", and dates back to the mid 1980's. The name change came about as wanting to be more appropriate to the older student group that the program now works with.
