National Aboriginal and Torres Islander Children’s Day.

On the 4th August we celebrate and acknowledge National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day. This day is a time of celebration for the children and this years theme is:

We are the Elders of tomorrow, hear our voice”.

Last week Assistant Commissioner John Hammond, Indigenous Cadet Nikea Hall, Patient Transport Officer Tamieka Creed and Indigenous Paramedic Program Coordinator Trish Murray attended Koobara Kindy to donate bags and footballs painted in Indigenous designs to help us celebrate this special day.

The bags contained native seeds, activity cards, crayons, and a book, “No Way Yirrikipayi” containing stories co-written by children from Melville Island.

A BIG THANK YOU Queensland Ambulance Service for celebrating this day with us! We loved our gifts.🥰
