KOORI CULTURE PROGRAM

The Deadly choices program will be running over 8 weeks in Term 4 every Monday afternoon with all Koori students in grade 4, 5 and 6. Nathan Yates from MDAS is the facilitator of this Amazing program; with Annie Villiva (wellbeing officer) and Tim Donaldson (ES) co facilitating. Leadership, Chronic Disease, Nutrition, Physical Activity, Healthy relationships and the importance of health checks and links to the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander medical service are some of the topics covered in this program. The students in the program have loved hearing about their culture, they are sharing things about their Mob, and they have also been practicing a Welcome/Acknowledgment to country with no assistance. We are all very proud of the Koori kids in the program. Annie Villiva (Wellbeing Officer)
