Australia Day treat
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, are a weeklong 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 12-18 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.
