This month we held girls’ Aspire Camps in Ballarat and Bacchus Marsh, with approximately 15 girls being involved in the tutoring and mentoring program.
We also held our first Literacy and Heritage camp for 2015 on Saturday 7th March, at Federation University in Ballarat. As with other camps, this involved students undertaking literacy and numeracy testing and tutorial work in the morning, and then cultural activities in the afternoon which included drawing and painting. 27 Indigenous children attended the camp.
ALF also put on an Easter egg hunt as part of the Easter break up at the Bacchus Marsh Homework Club, held at Darley Neighbourhood House.
Pictured below is Aboriginal Art guru, Shirley Collins and ALF’s Janet Curtain – one of the Arts and Cultural program supervisors. Both ladies along with Jane Lewis from Raintree Art Gallery will be closely involved in this wonderful program.
