Pre-school celebrates Closing The Gap Day

GUMMYANEY Aboriginal Preschool celebrated Closing The Gap Day by focussing on health and education at its Gummyaney Take 2 Event on Thursday, March 17.

The day began with a welcome to Country by Uncle Roger Duroux and was attended by the Maclean Elders Group.

Everyone enjoyed the play "Wombat Stew"performed by the talented young children. They had been practising this for most of the term.

Services which attended included:

  • Solid Mob who provided information on quitting smoking and healthy lifestyles;
  • Kelly St Playgroup who promoted their service by providing information and introducing children to education and play;
  • Munch and Move who provide a healthy food and exercise program;
  • The Clarence Regional Library attended and provided story times and singing with the children.

We catered for the event with bush tucker, offering foods such as kangaroo spring rolls, lemon myrtle cheesecake and damper with lilli pilli jam.

All the children, staff and most welcome guests had a very enjoyable day.
