Narooma VIEW Celebrates 45th Birthday.

To have Narooma Public School students welcome the members and guests of Narooma VIEW Club to their 45th Birthday Meeting with drums, dance and chanting was a privilege indeed. Approximately 120 students came across from the school to the Narooma Golf Club with their teacher, Michelle Garcia and Lyn Thomas, the school’s Aboriginal Education Officer.

All those present were captivated by the three separate performances and the good behaviour of the students. The three pieces showed the ability of the children, their obvious interest and enjoyment in what they were doing, and the skills imparted to them by their teachers. The NAIDOC drumming group performed a drum accompaniment to the welcome to country, the NAIDOC dance group performed a song that was about connection to country and spirit, and then about 60 other pupils chanted a welcome to country.

The guests included VIEW representatives from Bega, Merimbula and Eden and the Club was fortunate to also have the Zone Councillor, Anne Comery and Area Advisor, Pat McRae, present. Two long serving members of the Narooma VIEW Club were presented with badges – Shirley Gunter (30 years) and Glen Pisanos (20 years). Shirley cut the yummy black forest cake after a rousing round of “Happy Birthday” from those present and fun began. Apart from a lovely meal, there were guessing games, memories to share, and lots of conversations to round out the day. A most successful birthday indeed!

The Narooma VIEW Club meets on the 4th Friday of the month for lunch at Narooma Golf Club. It’s a great way to meet others, to form friendships, listen to interesting presenters and support the Smith Family’s Learning for Life Program, (which assists disadvantaged school children in the local area to reach their academic potential.)
