Past

NAIDOC Week 2017

The Collingwood Football Club had a very special visitor during NAIDOC Week 2017.

We had the privilege of having Uncle Kevin Coombs come to talk to us about his time as an Australian wheelchair basketballer and athlete, who competed at five Paralympics, including the first Paralympic Games in 1960.

Uncle Kevin Coombs was the first Australian Aboriginal Paralympic competitor for Australia.

Thanks for visiting Uncle Kevin – you’re an absolute legend!

NAIDOC Week 2016

In 2016, we celebrated Indigenous Australians with our first NAIDOC event.

We held an afternoon tea with bush tucker food, Aboriginal art activities by Yarn Strong Sista, a Welcome to Country by Aunty Di Kerr and speeches by then CEO Gary Pert and The Barrawarn Program’s Ambassador Travis Varcoe.

It was a great afternoon full of yarns and laughs. Guests included staff, players, AFLPA, community members, program partners and government departments.
