Looma Deadly Diva Day

On 20th November 8 girls got together for the Deadly Diva Day at Looma Remote Community School. The first time hosting this event in a few years and it was a fantastic day for all.

The girls engaged in workshops promoting health and well being through dance, nutrition, social and emotional well being, bush medicine and bush lemongrass iced tea from local elder, Annie Milgin. The girls were shy for the first 2mins, after that there was no stopping them. Great energy from the girls all day.

We’d like to thank Derby Aboriginal Health Service for delivering the Tackling Indigenous Smoking workshop and focus on Healthy Relationships. Thanks to Marika from Garl Garl Walbu who conducted the Beer Goggles Session, Layla from Garnduwa who led the Nutritional Workshop helping the girls prepare a healthy lunch. Thanks to Annie Milgin for sharing her knowledge and wisdom with our youth about language, culture and country.

Finally, massive thanks to Looma Remote Community School for allowing us to visit your school to deliver an exciting event. We hope the girls got as much out of it as we did and look forward to next year!
