Minjilang junior basketball grand finale

31 January 2022

The Minjilang junior basketball grand final finished off the competition on a high late last year. 
In support of the event, there was an opening ceremony with West Arnhem Regional Council Elected Member and Local Authority member Henry Guwiyul leading the way with his song line Milyarryarr. 
All the children danced our traditional dance and the parents joined in.
There were 2 boys’ teams and 2 girls’ teams of 8 to 9 players on each teams aged 8 to 14. 
The whole community was in attendance to support the teams and everyone had heaps of fun. 
There were also hot dogs and icy poles for the children to have after the games and then we finished off with a disco. 
West Arnhem Regional Council’s Well-being Coordinator Leah Holt said would like to acknowledge my staff for all their hard work and effort throughout our 5 month carnival. 
A big shout out goes to Sophia Lee for all her amazing ideas within the youth sports and recreation area and her wonderful commitment.
