Huge turnout today for the PIEEC (Pumicestone Indigenous Education & Employment Council Inc) Cultural Day.

Thank you so much for inviting me to say a few words. It was an enjoyable day with educational speakers, dance performances, kids activities and a stall holders.

I had a great time being involved and being entertained, as well as educated.

Special thanks to Kristine for inviting me and Michelle for hosting and chairing the event.
I was entertained by DJ Warrior (music) Craig (awesome dance moves and speaker) Aunty Sharon, her 2 daughters (Tianna and Jess) and her pet Emu (who doesn't like his feet getting touched) as well as Special Guest speaker Trudie Broderick (who I shall chase up the poem she wrote and share with you all)

Thanks also to Aunty Flo, Uncle Ron, Uncle Mick and the other Elders present today.

About: Pumicestone Indigenous Education and Employment Council Inc (PIEEC) has been established since 2020 providing cultural activities to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people residing in the Pumicestone region and further afield. They have also been active in providing cultural experiences to many organisations on Bribie Island e.g Seaside Museum, Bribe Respite Centre, Bribie Arts Centre, Bribie Tigers Soccer Club and Bribie Lions.
PIEEC partners with the Youth Advocacy Centre (YAC) to run Thursday afternoon activities at the Bribie Island Skate Park for our jarjums (children), other young people and their families. These activities provide a safe cultural space for all community to come together and share, learn and gain information on appropriate referral pathways.

This is all part of the NAIDOC week celebrations.

Beautiful day..well done to all involved!

Thank you 😊

Does anyone know what function this is?

What's this about I'm Nigerian

Desley from Hope in a Suitcase Australia - Sunshine Coast/Nth Brisbane Regions called into our office to deliver "our suitcase" so that we can now collect for this very worthwhile cause.
Hope in a Suitcase is non-profit and provides suitcases of essential new items like clothing, pyjamas, toiletries, toys, blankets and something to cuddle, for every child who goes into foster care from newborn to 18. It is a sad fact that so many children need to go into foster care but it is an even sadder fact that most of them are removed from their homes with either the clothes on their backs or a plastic/garbage bag with a few meager belongings. These suitcases have given hope to each child and a sense that they matter, a distraction from the traumatic situation they find themselves in, that they are worthy and the community cares for them. Hope in a Suitcase are run entirely by volunteers and they rely on donations of new items from the community to fill these suitcases.

If you can help by donating essential new items like clothing, pyjamas, toiletries, toys and blankets we now have a Collection Point in our Electoral Office.

For more information on our cause you can see us on Facebook www.facebook.com/HIASASC/ or their national website www.hopeinasuitcase.com.au

Thank you so much for supporting our cause Terry Young MP. Without drop off locations people can’t get their donations to us without the generosity of businesses and community representatives like yourself. Together we’re making a difference πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’œ

Brilliant organisation- what an excellent but simple way to give value to these kids.

Wonderful. Would also be good for those children who escape domestic violence with parent and often leave house with nothing but clothes on their backs. 😊

This is brilliant! I will definitely be popping by!

This is so good. So beautiful 😍

Rachael... we should look at doing this.

Well done, congratulations.

Terry Young MP can you provide us all with a weekly update of what is needed so we can contribute. Many thanks.

Fabulous cause, will drop off some toys

Did you Know?

This year marks the 120th anniversary of the Commonwealth Franchise Act 1902. The landmark law granted most Australian women the right to vote and to stand in federal elections.
Australia was the first nation in the world to grant women these dual rights.
In fact my Electorate "LONGMAN" is named after Irene Longman, (a member of the Country and Progressive National Party) was the first woman to be elected to the Parliament of Queensland.
