FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Parents as first teachers! Why wait for someone else, why wait till your babies is three then send them to school, the more you give the greater your child has to succeed in this world.  Learning starts with what parents teach or show their children through actions or words make it positive and fun then learning becomes positive and fun for your child.

PARENTS NEED TO TAKE THE HIGHER GROUND AND ACT LIKE A GROWN UP WHEN IT COMES TO THE IMPACT OUR DECISION MAKING HAS ON OUR CHILDREN.

It’s easy to find funding to buy tools, equipment, gym gear, set up a community hall or create an after school program, without the people of the land or  the locals who call Yalgoo home helping out all you have is service providers, providing. By taking ownership and responsibility we end up with community doing for community, hence the numbers swelling in the last month at the community hall during the week and on weekends and the work being done  down at the men’s/youth shed.

FOOTY AND NETBALL BACK ON

Footy and netball session draws ever nearer, the bus has been booked and funding applied for, to the children the expectations around your behaviour on the bus does not change based on who sits in the bus or drives it. As the funding and bus has been applied for under Centacare and you’re footy and netball supported by your parents make sure you do right by them or you may find that we all lose the use of the community bus. To the parents reminding the children that using the bus is a privilege not a right, look after what we have and we get to use it for a long time.

MEN’S/ YOUTH AND COMMUNITY WORK SHOP

We are finally getting there, a big welcome and thank you to DJ, you have started the ball rolling and I hope we continue to gather momentum. DJ has been busy down at the old gun club with young Zac Simpson setting up our work space, the job is dirty and hot the fly’s and bugs hang out with you like you are best friends but the boys keep working towards the goal of creating a space for fathers and sons, uncles and nephews come to work, share and learn from each other.

YALGOO LOCAL DRUG ACTION GROUP

Thank you to the ladies who turned up for our meeting a couple of months back, things have been moving along behind the scene, the Yalgoo races are almost upon us. We managed to secure $3000 of funding to run activities and provide healthy alternatives to alcohol and greasy food. We will operate a free fruit and hot drink stand along with supplying information on the harmful effects drugs and alcohol can have on individuals, families and community. There will be a children’s activity area that will have interactive games like croquet, bocce, quoits, sticky wicket and the old horse shoe toss game. There will be organised races, as well as tug of war for all those that need to pull something on the day beside your money out of your pocket. Our first LDAG community barbeque was a mellow Saturday affair, we had a good turnout of locals who came to share company and food while hearing about the direction we are taking our LDAG. In the last year we have secured $12000 of funding for gym gear, equipment for community hall and tools for men’s/youth & community work shop. The key here is to make sure this gear stays in your community by getting involved and taking on a leadership role for the future.

Funding has also been granted so we can celebrate volunteer’s week in May, look forward to putting on a community movie night and barbeque tea to thank all the people who give their time to their community. There will be a bit of work to organise and run this many hands make light work, we will be having a meeting to plan this day within the next three weeks.
