BARRMARRANY NGAAWA NGAARRI GAYWA (Family Language Play Day)
Key Employment in association with “Ready Mob” have run a celebration for NAIDOC week. Festivities kicked off with Clarke Webb welcoming everyone to the Key Employment location in West High Street. He then went on to run a language workshop in the local Gumbaynggirr language, coinciding with the theme for NAIDOC week being “Our Language Matters”.
The children enjoyed colouring in competitions, a jumping castle and the Basketball and Tennis courts.
The BBQ was full steam ahead ensuring everyone had a full stomach.
A dance group was on offer, busting moves for all to see, getting the spectators involved and having loads of fun.
The day was finished off with an exhibition game of basketball with a few staff from Ready Mob, Key Employment and other members of the audience making up the numbers.
Key Employment would like to thank “Ready Mob” for their involvement in the Family Language play day and making it such a success.
Till Next year
“Key Employment has changed my life by getting me a job and helping me start my career. They check on my progress regularly and are always there to offer support if I need it.”
“I think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
“Now I don’t think I am below anybody. I feel different from what I used to believe. I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy.”
“I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy, and the people at Key Training make me feel like a valued member of the community.”
