Dubbo Holiday Activities
Since 2003, this project contributes in supporting the indigenous community living in Dubbo and making the holiday period a productive time for the indigenous children and youth.
The aim of this project is to avoid vandalism and destructive behavior by providing activities for children and youth to spend their holiday time in a productive and safe environment. Over the years, Creston College have conducted the following activities at Dubbo, NSW:
a. Leadership programs for indigenous Australian girls aimed at giving young women the opportunity to learn more about themselves and be inspired to become leaders within their community.
b. Holiday program for indigenous Australian children. The holiday activities included cooking and eating healthy foods, arts and crafts, sports, music and dancing. These activities not only offer the children an entertaining holiday, but also aim to help them grow in self-confidence and respect for others.
c. Community support activities such as working with the Baptist Community Centre by visiting elderly beneficiaries and providing much needed social engagement and working at the Community Kitchen to assist needy families of the Dubbo community.
The Dubbo Service Project is a joint project of Reledev and Creston College and is organised in consultation and assistance of two Dubbo community organisations: Apollo House and the Buninyong Community Centre.
