The Woori kids program aims to engage with the young people of Woorabinda through interactive, semi-structured educational activities that promote community wellbeing, particularly focusing around healthy living concepts.
The program is a joint initiative led by the Central QLD Medicare Local (CQML) in partnership with the Central Queensland Rural Division of General Practice (CQRDGP), Red Cross and the Woorabinda Council.
The program delivers weekly art sessions for participants to work on a collaborative art work that will reflect the young peoples' representation of health and healthy living. Health education has also been delivered through fortnightly cooking activities and the planting and maintenance of a small vegetable patch in the CQML and CQRDGP vacant garden beds.
The program has so far been a success, running since July and being well attended, with over 50 young people in the community joining in the activities.
