Cre­ativ­ity and fun fo­cus of pro­gram

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle -

The Shire of Ash­bur­ton’s school hol­i­day pro­gram kept chil­dren of all ages busy.

They were given the op­por­tu­nity to get cre­ative, learn and have fun. On July 11, Pan­na­won­ica young­sters were treated to a visit to the lo­cal po­lice sta­tion to be an of­fi­cer for a day.

Onslow mums and dads had some fun at the adults-only bub­ble soc­cer com­pe­ti­tion on July 14, which proved pop­u­lar among par­tic­i­pants and the young spec­ta­tors on the side­lines.

Shire pres­i­dent Kerry White said it was fan­tas­tic to see so many chil­dren par­tic­i­pat­ing in the var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing the school hol­i­day pe­riod.

The Shire’s pro­gram was run in part­ner­ship with Rio Tinto and Chevron. Rio Tinto gen­eral man­ager Parabur­doo re­gion Gabrielle Iwanow said the school hol­i­day pro­gram en­abled lo­cals to stay home, ex­plore and en­joy the beau­ti­ful Pil­bara.

“The school hol­i­day pro­gram had a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties that en­cour­aged cre­ativ­ity and op­por­tu­ni­ties to en­gage in arts and lo­cal cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ences, ” she said.

Chevron Aus­tralia com­mu­nity en­gage­ment ad­viser Erin Glancy said cel­e­bra­tions and hol­i­day events played an im­por­tant role in bring­ing the com­mu­nity to­gether.

“The school hol­i­day ac­tiv­i­ties form part of our Work­ing To­gether for Onslow part­ner­ship with the Shire of Ash­bur­ton, which sup­ports com­mu­nity events and pro­grams that help make Onslow a vi­brant and in­clu­sive place to live and work,” she said.
