Torres Strait Islander Flag is flying again after completion of significant repairs!
Community members may have noticed that over the past couple of months the Torres Strait Islander flag has not been flying. The flag was temporarily removed due to unforeseen damages to the flag pole.
We have a long standing commitment to acknowledging, respecting and recognising the Torres Strait Islander community and the significant contribution made to the Darebin community. With repairs completed, the flag is flying again.
Yesterday I got to catch up with my school mate, Geoff Uta after 30 years. Geoff went home to Saibai island in the Torres Strait after year 12 and we lost touch. Geoff’s wife Karen found me on Facebook and organised a surprise for him. I’m so grateful to Karen for the opportunity to reconnect and meet their beautiful family. It was like we hadn’t seen each other for a week not 30 years. I guarantee it won’t be that long between our next drinks brother. #realmateship#lifelong#thirtyyearreunion#sogood#torresstraitislander#redcliffe#saibaiislander#lifeisgreat
Can you see the water? // we've spent the last two days in Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Mental Health First Aid training. It's been such a reinforcement of the wisdom that things are not always as they seem for some people, the vision is not always this crystal clear, and that's ok. It is so important to be safe & to be culturally safe when you are in a situation where your help is needed. This is a great course to do, I highly recommend it to anybody in service delivery and other professions. Especially if you are going to be working with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people. // 📷This image you may or may not notice the water. If you look at my feet you will see where the line creeps across my feet. Always remember things are not always this clear for people. And the saying we know to well, always be kind as people are fighting battles we may know nothing about is so important.
The KARI netball team recently participated in the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Netball Tournament.
The tournament was a great opportunity to promote healthy lifestyles and fitness in a culturally enriching environment. The event brought together teams both locally and state-wide and provided an opportunity for communities to meet, yarn and have fun!
