TAFE Western will play an integral part in a special NAIDOC Day community event planned for Narromine on Friday, September 9.
Opportunity Hub Coordinator Diana Turner said TAFE Western would have a strong presence at the event, helping the community celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
“TAFE Western is absolutely thrilled to be one of the many proud sponsors of this wonderful event that will bring the Narromine community together to celebrate NAIDOC Day,” Ms Turner said.
“We are committed to offering a number of fun and exciting activities on the day, while also promoting the benefits of attending TAFE.”
TAFE Western will conduct a number of arts and crafts activities, children’s activities and fitness sessions with the Indigenous Police Recruitment Our Way Delivery (IPROWD) students promising to be a highlight on the day.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have the IPROWD students come along to the NAIDOC Day event – they are great role models for members of our community,” one of the NAIDOC Day organisers Sharon Milnes said.
“We have worked really hard to ensure that everyone involved in the day has had input in the day’s activities because we wanted it to appeal to people of all ages and bring a large cross-section of people together,” she added.
Other fun activities planned for the day include a jumping castle, animal farm, Aboriginal dancing and singing, face painting, health checks, information stalls with lots of freebies along with a barbecue lunch.
The NAIDOC Day event starts at 10am at Dundas Park and will conclude at 2pm. Everyone in the Narromine community is invited and encouraged to attend.
