Defence Force camp is deadly
Indigenous students from around WA got a behind-the-scenes look at life in the Australian Defence Force this week as part of a three-day Navy Immersion Camp at HMAS Stirling.
About 20 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from the Graham Polly Farmer Foundation’s Follow the Dream program and the Wirrpanda Foundation’s Deadly Sista Girlz program took part in military-style team building water exercises, fitness training, water adventure training and a careers presentation. Wirrpanda Foundation program development officer Simon Nimmo said the camp was well received by participants.
“I am so pleased the Wirrpanda Foundation DSG participants took the opportunity and believe all of our girls are keen to learn more about the Defence Force and some will choose this as a career path,” he said.
