“Once such achievement is the Partnership, Acceptance, Learning and Sharing (PALS) program, which has been developed and delivered across the State by the Carpenter Government.
“Based on the attributes of PALS, the program encourages young people to take a leadership role in strengthening the relationships that exist in their local community between indigenous and non-indigenous people.”
“Students can then use this new level of understanding, introducing positive change in their life and their community.
“In only three years some 25,000 students, predominantly at primary school, have been involved in more than 140 PALS projects across WA.”
The Department of Indigenous Affairs will have a dedicated PALS stall, as well as sponsoring the children’s marquee, which will offer a range of fun and exciting arts and crafts activities for children of all ages throughout the afternoon.
