'Smarter than Smoking' Junior Basketball Carnival
Thursday the 23rd March 2017 saw various schools of the Valley come together at the Fitzroy Recreation Centre, to compete in the 'Smarter than Smoking' Junior Basketball Carnival. Yiyili, Wangkatjungka, Bayulu, Muludja and Fitzroy all attended and took part in the round-robin competition hosted by Garnduwa. Community members showed great support giving up time in their busy day to volunteer as Referees and Scorers, it is with their assistance that the day proved a great success. As well as the matches, the students were treated to a health workshop from Amanda and Mick from Nindilingarri. They informed the kids on the negative effects smoking can have on a person as well as an interactive demonstration on nutrition.
With the positive reception from teachers and students alike, the carnival hopes to be a main stay of term 1 in years to come
