Gimbay Boo-larng (meaning friends together in Gathang) is an exciting new program starting in Taree in 2018 which aims to help indigenous youth discover their heritage and identity. This group will meet on a Friday night during school term time and is open to all indigenous males between the ages of 10-18 years.
This is an initiative of the HNE local Area Health District and supported by the Taree Purfleet Local Area Land Council and Tobwabba health initiative.
Indigenous men will teach culture and knowledge relating to the first peoples of this area- the Worimi and Biripi Nations while providing friendship and mentoring. Interactive language, art, dance and culture will feature along with other enjoyable activities.
We are currently looking for indigenous men who are proud of their heritage and would like to share it with the youth of our valleys.
We are also now opening registrations for male young persons from 10-18 years who would be interested in coming along to learn more about their identity.
Contact Will Kennedy on 6592 9133 or speak to your school’s Aboriginal liaison officer.
We would love to have you on board!
