Maningrida celebrates International Women's Day

13 March 2019

Maningrida Youth, Sport and Recreation (YSR) alongside Aged Care and Stronger Communities for Children (SCfC) celebrated the young girls in Maningrida in recognition of International Women’s Day on Wednesday, March 6.
Girls from around Maningrida came afterschool to join in with some Aged Care clients in a movie, ‘The Songlines’, jewelry making and a big feast of fish, bush potatoes and carrots and salads. 
Those who attended enjoyed spending the afternoon running around Aged Care playing ‘hide and seek’ and tip tip while waiting for tucker. 
There was also a spontaneous walk to the beach where all the girls had fun jumping, running and playing together. 
The night finished off with everyone sitting together for a feed and three girls were also awarded with a certificate and gift bag to recognise their amazing skills and achievements.
Thanks to all who came along and enjoyed the afternoon and also to all the staff at Aged Care for hosting everyone and helping out with the afternoon. 
Thank you also to Petra at SCfC who initiated the event and supported along the way and to the Youth, Sport and Recreation staff who did a great job working the event.
