Our jarjums recently celebrated their love for reading on Indigenous Literacy Day at the Waterford Child and Family Centre with a deadly picnic and activities.
The Burragah Kindy kids had a ball dressing up as their favourite book character and getting involved in storytelling, craft, activities and outdoor fun.
What a deadly way to celebrate culture, stories, literacy and language.

Check out 13 year old Bowman who captained the U14s Brisbane Cobras to the grand final of the Qld Touch Football Junior State Championships. Bowman is one of our Young, Black and Proud Scholarship winners and used the funds to cover his footy rego and uniform costs. If that wasn’t deadly enough, Bowman has been selected for the Junior Broncos development camp next year.
