March 201322 Continued from Page 21 Around 30 kids of varying age groups regularly visit the covered basket ball area with the older kids assisting and playing with the younger ones. Every one is very supportive of each other and would rather play football or jump on a trampoline on to gym mats than watch movies. There is even a football team called the Alcoota Grows. The community girls and women are also very active and are waiting for the softball season to restart. The sports teams of Alcoota have won numerous trophies that are on proud display in the Community Hall. The hall also has a kitchen in which Joy Turner and Brenda Tilmouth cook meals for the kids attending Alcoota School. The Alcoota Health Centre is run by Jayne Kollner who is assisted by Anton Driver and Linsey James, Community Health Workers and Michelle Dickson the Receptionist. Anton has been with the Health Centre for 4 years, has a Diploma in Community Business Management, spent a number of years working in disability care areas and fi nds the work demanding but great. He is multi skilled and a great help to those visiting the Health Centre and Community as he organises meetings between the Elders and those visiting the Community. Linsey comes from Uluru and has lived in the Community since 1992, worked as a Supervisor in the Shire and is an all-round/multiskilled Community Worker who assists Anton with Mens health matters.
