It was great to have NAIDOC falling in the school term, and Yandeyarra celebrated with school awards, a community BBQ and concert for everyone in the community.

We had some great helpers making damper and stews throughout the day, and music and dancing competitions until late in the night. As a very wise Yandeyarra lady once said ‘ it’s not NAIDOC without dancing!’ Read more-

In Yandeyarra 3-5 July

Not long until the 2012 Desert Feet Tour, coming to Yandeyarra. This event will be part of our NAIDOC event. It will be a great community night.

All Yandeyarra Bands – get practicing and Dancers – get your moves ready! We will be recording some more songs, so start thinking about some lines for a rap or song because we want to be bigger and better than last year! If you know anyone that can play an instrument, sing or dance – get them involved!

Find out more about what other communities have done, and listen to their music here.

Friday Sport

We had a good game of foot-tee for Friday sport this afternoon, with Derwin’s Bulldogs scoring 7 runs and Hawthorn scoring 9 runs. Unfortunately, the Bulldogs lost 8 points (and a bad point) meaning they scored minus 2 overall!! Better luck next week :)

Final Score:

Bulldogs: -2                              Hawthorn: 6
