EPIC program gives taste of activities
Children and people with disabilities were busy trying their hands at a range of sports and activities over the school holidays.
Empowering People in Communities ran the Karratha community program for two weeks to help expose people to a range of activities available to them around town.
Over the course of the program, participants had a go at karate, Zumba, performing arts, rugby, netball, basketball and lawn bowls, as well as the family fun day in Wickham.
EPIC inclusion co-ordinator Michelle Doherty said the idea behind the program was to provide inclusive activities for all ages and abilities.
“It’s a non-competitive way which gives everyone a chance to come try different sports,” she said.
“The idea is people get to try a variety of things and if there is anything they really enjoy, they can then join as a club member.
“For the younger kids and the families, its a good chance for them to enjoy some time together. “For some of the older people who have an impairment, it’s good for them to come along and participate.”
Ms Doherty said information for the next school holiday program would be out soon.
