Wirrpanda visit to bridge gap in Wagin

Date posted: 18 March 2014

Bridging the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians with sport will be the aim of the Wirrpanda Foundation, when it visits Wagin in and other Great Southern towns in Western Australia this week.

With the appointment of Robbie Miniter the foundation aims to build relationships between Aboriginal families and sport organisations, recreation centres, local government and other agencies relevant to Aboriginal communities to increase the participation and involvement in sport and active recreation.

He said the breakdown in cultural understanding in the past means the latest generations of young people understand Indigenous culture less and less.

'Hopefully through guidance into sport we can achieve the focus of increased retention of kids in school and improve their outlooks.'

Mr Miniter will be in Wagin regularly, as well as most other parts of the Great Southern.
