Strong & Proud

The Strong & Proud group were recently involved in Surf lifesaving activites with the Albany Surf Life Saving Club (ASLSC) at Middleton Beach.  There were 14 Aboriginal youth getting to know how to become a lifesaver and having a go at surfing.

Many of the youth participated in team building activities like the flag event. They had a couple of rounds of flags and then got into catching waves on the surf rescue boards. Not everyone got wet but they really supported everyone having a go on the boards.

Thank you to Rob and Jo Lucas for leading the activities and Karen Herlihy and Jordan Hayward for providing water safety from ASLSC  


This Monday Larry will be taking us on an excursion around the town telling us about our culture and showing us some cultural locations.
