BRISBANE INDIGENOUS CLINIC [SUMMARY]
Saturday January 20th, 2018
On January 20th, we held our first Brisbane City Council basketball clinic of 2018 which included introductory skill-based activities for the children new to basketball and an advanced session for those more experience and advanced in the game. As well as basketball activities we included activities to connect with Aboriginal elders and mentors, learn about their culture, and develop skills to share their cultural journey with others. Local elder Auntie Peggy spoke on respect, giving it your all and following your dreams. Indigenous mentors lead a range of cultural activities, including traditional music in the form of didgeridoo performance with art and dance to be introduced in future clinics in 2018.
The Brisbane City Council clinics introduce Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth to the game of basketball to increase participation rates and increase their current knowledge, skills and enjoyment of the game. The clinics provide opportunities for players to be mentored in personal growth in terms of leadership skills, teamwork and confidence and help us achieve our overall goal of reinforcing the importance of a healthy lifestyle and a good education with the assistance of the College for Indigenous Studies, Education and Research, University of Southern Queensland. All this made possible thanks to the amazing Indigenous team at the Brisbane City Council.
PCYC is committed to ongoing consultation with Indigenous Communities, leading to the development and delivery of targeted programs that respond effectively to the needs of the 38 Indigenous communities we work closely with. PCYC Indigenous programs continue to achieve physical, social and emotional wellbeing outcomes for participants through our flagship programs; the Indigenous Community Sport & Recreation Program (ICSRP) and the Deadly Alive Program (Suicide Prevention).
The overarching philosophy of PCYC’s Indigenous Programs is to provide a coordinated social development platform in partnership with internal and external partners that create opportunities for Indigenous youth and their families to actively participate in meaningful activities that support healthy lifestyles.
The College for Indigenous Studies, Education and Research is located across USQ's three campuses, Toowoomba, Springfield and Ipswich. The main purpose of the college is to encourage and assist the further education of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
