School-aged children - NO PASS OUTS Sausage Sizzle fundraiser by Underwater Hockey In the haunted Jabiru Hall Ages 10+ only in the 'enter at own risk' section at Hall It affects us all. When a family member or friend drink drive, speed, or drive without a seat belt, even worse have a youth in the car without a seat belt. This affects us all. Did you know the biggest contributing factor to deaths on Northern Territory roads are caused by alcohol! Drink drivers involved in fatal accidents are more likely to have been speeding or not wearing a seatbelt than sober drivers. Alcohol affects: Decision making Reaction times Speed and distance judgments Concentration Balance Perception and alertness Driving also increase risk- taking behaviour by giving a driver a false sense of confidence. Be responsible and make me matter, you matter and us matter by knowing your limit. For more information go to www.roadsafety.nt.gov.au GET HOME SAFELY- DONT DRINK AND DRIVE - we all deserve to live! There was a cultural tour by the team at the Warruwi Clinic recently. The educational tour was led by Community Liaison Officer James Marrawal to familiarise Health Centre staff members with the ceremonial grounds/mens and womens area. It also provided the opportunity to seek out local native foods such as fresh oysters, bush apples, Gunbigreen plums and Wigal-Native asparagus. Afternoons like this are an important part of team building and learning, in order to practice in a culturally sensitive manner for all staff. The tour ended with a fire with tea and afternoon snacks which everyone in attendance enjoyed. CULTURAL TOUR FOR WARRUWI CLINIC STAFF
