Dear Friends,

May is action packed with good news stories at CFF.

Eight primary school students have earned their place on a Horizons trip to Melbourne for the trip of a lifetime.Trip highlights include a mystery dinner, participation in the Long Walk and watching the Dreamtime AFL game, surfing and visits to the sports museum, Queen Vic market and Queenscliff. Keep an eye on Facebook for the latest updates.

Meanwhile, congratulations are in order for 16 girls on Palm Island who made victorious netball history in Townsville on 17 and 18 May as part of the CFF Activities program. The St Michael’s and Bwgcolman teams were both winners of the Under 12 Division. St Michael’s were awarded first place as undefeated winners, and Bwgcolman were awarded runners up.

Meanwhile, more than 400 participants at the May Day lunch in Melbourne helped raise $75K for program delivery on May16 and our heartfelt thanks goes to everyone involved in this wonderful initiative.

For the latest info, please visit our bi annual newsletter and details of our End of Financial Year Appeal which is a critical fundraiser that enables us to continue to deliver education programs for Indigenous children in remote communities.

Best wishes
