The event was a wonderful demonstration of John Heywood's quote: "Many hands make light work". Certificate III Hospitality Students, Get Set For Work participants and Transition to Work participants, joined by IMPACT staff, prepared and served a two-course meal for more than 60 guests. Decorations were designed and created by participants from one of IMPACT's mental health programmes and guests were entertained by the IMPACT Community Choir, performers from a local high school and other entertainers from the region.
NAIDOC week celebrates the history culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. Celebrations run from 2-9 July and this year’s theme is Our Languages Matter. In recognition of the theme, youth from the community spoke to Elders at the IMPACT lunch about their experiences with Indigenous languages.
Congratulations to all involved in the ‘Yarnin’ with the Elders' lunch. Everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
