CHILDREN from a WA indigenous community visited Arena Joondalup on Monday to take part in a range of fun activities.

The initiative was part of a school holiday program run by the Boab Network, with help from VenuesWest, and saw 16 youngsters from Mowanjum take part in a game of Australian Rules football, play basketball, take on an obstacle course and have fun on the slide.

VenuesWest acting chief executive Peter Bauchop said the organisation was “very proud” to be associated with the Boab Network, which is “focused on giving back to the community by helping local community groups”. In 2014, VenuesWest provided the Boab Network with more than 1000 pieces of unclaimed items including goggles, jumpers, tracksuits and T-shirts.
