Last month, Skill Hire staff organised a Community Day in Indulkana which involved sports and activities for children, instruments and a stage for bands to play music and a BBQ dinner. The day was run by staff from Skill Hire with assistance from the SANFL and Woodville-West Torrens Eagles Football Club players and staff members.
The day provided an opportunity for the community to get together as well as continue to build the relationship between the Eagles, Skill Hire and the community. The FNWSL football season was due to kick off the following day with a double header in Indulkana so there was a bit of a buzz around the area.
Vicky, Emma, Peter and David from Skill Hire provided food and drinks for everyone near the stage. As the afternoon went on more and more of the local men began to filter through and play music.
Shelby from the SANFL Indigenous Program took the younger girls to play netball at Indulkana School while Luke Powell, Matthew Goldsworthy, Paul Stewart and Jared Petrenko from the Eagles took the younger males for a kick of the football down at the Indulkana Oval. With the football season about to start, the guys were certainly up and about.
With the inflatable goals and bouncing castle up for most of the day, the kids looked to be having loads of fun and showed plenty of acrobatic and football skills.
To close out the evening, everyone was able to tuck into sausages and bread after what had been a great day of engaging the people in the community.
The following day the Community Day organisers from Skill Hire and the Eagles headed back to Indulkana to watch the beginning of the FNWSL football. We felt that the response and interaction from the kids and Indulkana football team on this day were a great indication that the community day was a success.
