Strathcona Girls Visit Renaissance Living


Our regular Wednesday morning coffee morning tea got a delightful upgrade this week! In addition to Yue’s delicious coffee, residents were treated to a beautiful performance by seven talented young musicians from Strathcona Girls Grammar School.

Led by Head of Performing Arts Jenny Meachem, Emily, Sienna, Ella, Eleanor, Jenny, Edilyn, and Frances arrived by tram, cellos and all! They captivated the audience with a diverse program, ranging from well-known show tunes to classical pieces by Schumann and Bach.

While there might have been a few nerves in some of the performances, the overall talent was undeniable. Some of the pieces were nearly flawless, showcasing the dedication and skill of these young musicians.

Jenny explained that this performance provided a valuable opportunity for the girls to practice and gain experience performing for an audience, in preparation for their upcoming graded examinations. Her passion for their development and her pride in their achievements were evident throughout.

Mark Your Calendars for Wednesday May 29th as Jenny and another group of talented Strathcona students return to play for us. Don’t miss this chance to enjoy Yue’s coffee and some exceptional music in the good company of friends and neighbours.

Searching for “luxurious retirement villages near me?” Located in the heart of leafy and vibrant surrey hills, Renaissance Living is an independent lifestyle community for over 55s, where you’ll have the freedom of your own home, close to everything you love, without all the upkeep.

If you’re tired of house maintenance, looking to downsize or just like the idea of easy living in a fabulous lifestyle location, a luxurious Renaissance Living apartment could be your ideal next step.

What do our residents have to say?

There is a camaraderie shared amongst the people here, getting together for dinners, coffee and drinks, it is a kindness that’s extended to all, especially in times of need and a happiness of sharing time with Renaissance friends.

I have lived very comfortably indeed in my 1 bedroom apartment; it certainly represents great value for money when one considers similar apartments in other retirement villages or apartment blocks. The ability to use the shared common areas both inside and outside the building as you please, is a terrific advantage. The village has been generously designed to maximize the enjoyment of all residents and to make the most of all the facilities on offer. So I have my own space and privacy when I want as well as beautiful spaces to enjoy and socialise in.

Christmas Celebrations

In a dazzling display of Renaissance cocktail party flair, our Christmas celebration unfolded on Thursday night, graciously hosted by Managing Director Don Ravida and Village Manager Victoria, ably assisted by the dynamic team of David, Yue and Jay from the Ravida office.

The festive mood was set by Laura Kate, a beautiful young violinist and vocalist who played and sung an array of Christmas and festive tunes.

Victoria’s culinary expertise shone as she crafted a feast that tantalized our taste buds, the standouts for me were the succulent prawns, Pat Ravida’s pizza, and delightful pistachio chocolate Christmas balls. There were so many options and each one delicious making it nearly impossible to choose a favourite.

The libations flowed seamlessly, with a selection of delightful wines and quality beer, for those that partake and with just a short walk back to your home at the end of the night there really wasn’t a reason not to!
The lovely speech by Jan from the Residents Committee, expressing gratitude to Don and presenting gifts of appreciation to Village Managers Sharon, Victoria, and Marg, added a touch of warmth to the evening.

It was a great night and a beautiful celebration of the friendships and all that we have here in our lovely community at Renaissance Living Surrey Hills.

What do our residents have to say?

More importantly thanks to the residents and staff who have made my 8+ years here so wonderful, I just love living at Renaissance Living. As a friend reminded me on the weekend “Ageing is inevitable but maturing is optional”.
