Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

d471895 STRONG lo­cal women are at the fore­front of Jacaranda Com­mu­nity Cen­tre’s new pro­gram.

Staff mem­ber Tracey Hamel said the pro­gram, de­signed to bring women to­gether and con­nect the com­mu­nity, would strengthen self-re­liance, fight racism and re­duce so­cial iso­la­tion.

“We will have ex­cur­sions to places of Abo­rig­i­nal cul­tural in­ter­est, art classes, craft ses­sions, cook­ing classes, per­sonal fit­ness ses­sions, aqua-aer­o­bics and se­lected in­house train­ing like com­put­ing for fi­nan­cial pur­poses, and self-es­teem and con­fi­dence­build­ing.”

The pro­gram runs on a fort­nightly ba­sis on Tues­days from 10am to 1pm.

Women are wel­come to call Ms Hamel on 9477 4346 to find out more or call in to the of­fice on Ep­som Street.
