A Blue Light™ first for Bidyadanga
Excitement levels were at an all-time high in Bidyadanga this month when local Police Officers put on their first ever Blue Light™ Disco.
With over 160 kids attending, the disco was a huge success with lots of children asking when the next Blue Light event is!
Bidyadanga is the largest remote Aboriginal community in Western Australia. With a population of approximately 750 people and a high percentage of young residents, finding a variety of activities to meet the needs of young people is of great importance to the community. Senior Sergeant Martin Glynn knew that hosting a Blue Light™ disco would be the perfect opportunity for children and young people to have fun in a safe, supervised and fun environment.
With a clear demand for activities to keep young people active and engaged in Bidyadanga, PCYC supplied brand-new audio equipment to help make the disco possible. Local organisations including the Bidyadanga Aboriginal Community La Grange Inc. and Kullari Regional Communities Indigenous Corporation showed their support by providing the venue and food for the evening.
Senior Sergeant Glynn said, “the event wouldn’t have been possible without the wonderful teamwork of community service providers who all came together to make our Blue Light™ Disco such a spectacular event with music, door prizes, food, drinks and fun. A committed, engaged and caring group of people that make Bidyadanga special.”
