Roebourne PCYC in collaboration with Mentally Healthy WA – Act-Belong-Commit, held a fun-filled NAIDOC Talent Show on Friday 13th to celebrate the history, achievements and voice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Leading up to the event the young people participated in a week long workshop facilitated by Indigenous Hip Hop Group, which allowed young people to build their confidence and develop their routines in preparation for the stage.
The event saw a massive 120 community members attend, thanks to the hard work and dedication of hosts, Maxie Coppin and David Williams.
Young people were able to enter in four different categories – Open Microphone, Dance, Karaoke and Acting. These were Judge by Yindjibarndi Elder, Tootsie Daniel, Roebourne Police Officer in Charge, Tom Daly, Bangima Women and Teacher at Roebourne District Senior High School, Shenara Smith and Mentally Healthy WA Standing Strong Together Act-Belong-Commit Roebourne manager Lesley Murray.
Roebourne PCYC centre manager, Samantha Cornthwaite commented that the event was a huge success. ‘’To see the whole community turn up to support the kids is what’s it’s all about, these kids worked extremely hard over the week, and to hear the cheers for them and then the smiles on their faces was the absolute best’’
