The WA Centre for Rural Health is looking forward to hosting Craig Silvey and Stella Budrikis - Writer in conversation with Sandra Carr MLC tomorrow at our Mitchell Street Community Centre as part of the Geraldton Regional Library Big Sky Readers and Writers Festival in Geraldton!
The Western Australian Government has announced that mandatory contact registers will be introduced from Saturday, 5 December 2020 - including at the WA Centre for Rural Health and the Mitchell Street Community Centre. Maintaining a contact register is an extra safety measure and one of the most effective ways to control the spread of COVID-19.
Any person aged 16 and over will be required to register their contact details on arrival. To avoid delays, we strongly encourage you to use SafeWA, the WA Government’s free, secure and contactless QR code app. Download it before you arrive, via Apple App Store or Google Play. You can also register using a paper-based system if you don’t have a smartphone, or have not downloaded the App.

Tuesday 4th August marked National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children's Day and is celebrated across Australia with the theme - 'we are the Elders of tomorrow, hear our voice'. 🖤💛❤️

We celebrated at the Child and Parent Centre- Rangeway with the Kindy and Pre-Primary Students from Rangeway Primary School. We completed a colourful sand art activity where students chose colours representing what culture meant to them.
We learnt some local Wajarri words:
🔸 Play = biya
🔸 Sit = Nyina
🔸 Sand = nyaja
Emma then read a story about Australian bush animals. It was a very special day and we loved being involved.📚

Such a delight for the WA Centre for Rural Health to host Western Australian authors Craig Silvey and Stella Budrikis - Writer on the couch in conversation with Sandra Carr MLC at the Mitchell Street Community Centre for the Geraldton Regional Library Big Sky Readers and Writers Festival! Thanks to all those who came to the sold out event! #genderequality

📚🎉 2021 HIGHLIGHT! 🎉📚

It was an absolute career highlight for me having the opportunity to host 'Conversations on the Couch' with Craig Silvey author of Honeybee, and Stella Budrikis - Writer author of Baby Farm, as part of the Big Sky Readers and Writers Festival 2021.

Many of my former students can tell you how much I loved to teach Craig Silvey's Jasper Jones, and Honeybee is an equally important book and great read.

Baby Farm, by Stella Budrikis, is a fascinating insight into the early history of Perth and the awful social constraints leading to the phenomena of 'baby farms'.

My heartfelt thanks to these two wonderful authors, WA Centre for Rural Health, and the hard-working staff at Geraldton Regional Library for putting together the wonderful Big Sky Readers and Writers Festival 2021. My favourite Midwest event!
