We had fun at the Community Gathering.

We enjoyed the fabulous voices of Saraya Mauboy-Hudson and Fernades Sisters Justina and Jemima. Really if you have the opportunity to hear these young women perform again – jump at it!

Charlie King led a feedback session on the themes that came out of the Community Conversations in May. It was very useful for us to have some live responses. Thank you Charlie for your deep interest in and care for this community conversation. We are preparing a summary of people’s views with expertise from the School of Education at Charles Darwin University.  

June Mills a Larrakia elder inspired us with songs from her new children’s play ‘Witladla’. The play is about all different animals living together in a community where everyone looks out for each other and where they all work together to solve problems. A message for us adults as much as children!

A big ‘Well Done and Congratulations!’ the winners of our bike competitions. Especially those who won the Kind and Brave colouring in competition. Those winners put in a particularly huge effort and did a great job. Many thanks to The Smith Family for donating so these fabulous bikes.

It was great to see Kate Worden MLA Member for Sanderson and Justine Glover Alderman Waters Ward. Thank you also to members of the Sanderson Alliance from The Smith Family, Red Cross, the NT Music School and Malak Primary for supporting us on the day.

Lastly the biggest thanks to all the staff and volunteers at the Sanderson Neighborhood Activity Centre for hosting, organizing, funding and running the event. It was just such a dream to work with you all.
