The Palmerston Child and Family Centre in Farrar is the fourth site to begin operating under the expansion of the program to Palmerston, Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs in 2019. The Territory Labor Government committed $2.4m over four years to the program which is also operating in Ngukurr, G u n b a l a n y a , Galiwinku and Maningrida. The Hearing Health Partnership between the Departments of Health and Education is designed to educate families about how early identification, intervention and management can help reduce potential hearing loss. The program also plays a critical role in helping families understand the importance of good ear health to learning and childhood development. Minister for Children and Chief Minister Michael Gunner said, We know how critical good ear health is to the prevention of hearing loss and the development of good language skills. Being a parent doesnt come with an instruction manual so the Hearing Health Partnership is a way that we can support families to improve the lives of the next generation of Territorians. Integrating health workers at FaFT sites is an investment in our childrens future. IMPROVING HEARING IN EARLY YEARS IN REMOTE COMMUNITIES JUMPING INTO A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE West Arnhem Regional Councils Youth, Sport and Recreation team in Gunbalanya had a great time running a fitness challenge day during the recent school holiday program (pictured above). It was a great recreational activity for the youth of Gunbalanya and sport is a great avenue for children to release their energy in a healthy, positive way. There was plenty of hype throughout the day, including running races around the oval and there were prizes awarded for the most push-ups and star-jumps. Keeping in line with the fitness activities, the Youth, Sport and Recreation team also held a big kick football competition at the oval recently, which the young people in the community really enjoyed. There is always something happening, so keep an eye on the Gunbalanya Youth, Sport and Recreation Facebook page. Sport is a great avenue for children to release their energy in a healthy, positive way..
