2016 NWS April Regional School Holiday Program
Nyoongar Wellbeing & Sports are once again pleased to report it has been yet another successful and engaging Regional School Holiday Program across the South West and Wheatbelt. It was great to see so many participants come and enjoy the Program, despite the storm hitting the South West in the first week. Thank you to ABB for supporting some of the program.
Here is a great infographic highlighting its success and outstanding feedback.
First Aboriginal Corporate Sponsor
NWS are very excited to announce Cole Workwear as our first Aboriginal corporate sponsor. Cole Workwear is a one stop shop for all of your safety needs and is a proudly Noongar owned and run West Australian workwear company. In mid-2014 they achieved a first by launching the Boomerang Range™ - a range of stylish workwear designed in Australia, for Australians.
Cole Workwear have started their support by donating $1,000 to NWS. The money will be used to deliver cultural activities for our Young Aboriginal Girls program in Mirrabooka.
The program was established from a community request and has now been running for four years. It gives the girls a chance to enjoy various healthy programs including physical recreation, Aboriginal dance and other cultural activities. The money donated will help to provide cultural and bonding excursions to support building stronger relationships between mothers and daughters.
“We are so proud to have our first Aboriginal corporation partner with NWS to build the health, wellbeing and cultural development of the community we work with. The team are very excited about this new and ongoing partnership and encourage you to also support Cole Workwear and thereby support us too!”
Karyn Lisignoli, NWS CEO
