More than 80 high school girls attended Garnduwa’s annual Smarter than Smoking Deadly Diva Day that was held on the 18th of November at the Notre Dame Hall in Broome. Girls attended from Broome Senior High School, St Mary’s College, La Grange Remote Community School, Derby District High School and Sacred Heart School Beagle Bay.

It was a great day which offered a wide array of fun and interactive sessions that were delivered by a variety of health and youth organisations from around Broome. The sessions focused on mental health issues, nutrition, healthy relationships, empowerment and art and crafts. The girls were treated to a tasty and healthy morning tea and lunch which was followed by presentations from two Indigenous women from our community. The ladies shared their very different stories but both delivered strong messages to inspire the young women.

Each girl was given a gift bag at the end of the event and these were made by the generous donations of unique gifts and bag fillers from Hidden Valley Soaps, Paspaley Chemist, KAMS, Body Shop Consultant – Tammara Lee, Strong Spirit Strong Future, Healthy Life Active Life, Wunan Foundation, Red Cross, Broome Youth Families Hub, BRAMS and Headspace. We would like to thank each of you for your generosity. Also a huge thank you to Rachel Burns from the Broome Youth Families Hub for all her hard work putting the gift bags together.

Garnduwa would like to thank the Deadly Diva Day Committee for their contribution towards this year’s event and we hope you can come on board again next year to make it equally as successful.

SO CLEAN
