Aus­tralia Day treat

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Friendship Games -

TEENAGERS in the 2015 Friend­ship Games will have some of the best seats in the house to watch Mon­day’s Aus­tralia Day Sky­works.

The games, which start on Thurs­day, is a week-long sport­ing and so­cial bo­nanza for chil­dren from around Perth, and as far as away as China and In­done­sia.

As well as par­tic­i­pat­ing in sports com­pe­ti­tions such as ta­ble ten­nis, track and field, soc­cer and swimming, more than 300 par­tic­i­pants will be spe­cial guests at an Aus­tralia Day party at Mounts Bay Sail­ing Club.

In­dige­nous chefs from the Out­back Academy will serve an Aussie-theme bar­be­cue to about 400 par­tic­i­pants and guests, with kan­ga­roo and crocodile on the menu.

Friend­ship Games founder An­drew Vla­hov said the Aus­tralia Day party cel­e­brated Aus­tralia’s mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism and the all-in­clu­sive par­tic­i­pa­tion phi­los­o­phy of the games.

He said it was not too late for lo­cals aged 1218 to reg­is­ter for the Friend­ship Games.

Par­tic­i­pants will also take in Perth Glory and Perth Wild­cats home games and en­joy lunch on Aus­tralia Day at Gov­ern­ment House.
