Family Fun Day Starts NAIDOC Week

Fun for the whole family is the name of the game on Saturday when the 2011 Toowoomba NAIDOC Week program kicks off.

Carl Rakemanns Toowoomba Indoor Sports Centre on Spencer Street will be bouncing with the NAIDOC Family Fun Day starting at 9am. With indoor netball, soccer and volleyball for those keen to raise their friendly competitive spirit, there will also be workshops to learn more about how to play didgeridoo and shake a leg with traditional Aboriginal dance. There will also be giveaways, health screenings and a free lunch throughout the day.

Member of the organising committee Trish Cochrane said the day would be fun for the whole family. “There will be plenty for the kids to do and the adults as well and it should be a great way to start 2011 Toowoomba NAIDOC Week,” she said.

This year’s national NAIDOC Week theme is Change: the next step is ours and the 2011 Toowoomba NAIDOC Week Community Committee has designed a jam-packed week to celebrate culture and promote closing the gap.

NAIDOC week features barbecues at Queensland Health on Tuesday, bingo, a pool competition and movies as well as a Blue Light Disco for the kids on the Friday night.

A full run down of events can be found at the NAIDOC Week Toowoomba Facebook page.

One of the highlights of the week will be the Community Morning Tea on Wednesday at the Cathedral Centre from 10am where the winners of this year’s Toowoomba Community NAIDOC Awards will be announced.

Everyone is welcome to the events on the Toowoomba NAIDOC Week calendar with inclusion and acknowledgement being central to the theme of the local events.
