During Week 7 of Term 3, The Stars Foundation held the first of many beach activities at Casuarina Beach in Darwin. Stars from CSC, Nightcliff, Sanderson and Dripstone were joined by girls from Yirrkala and Nhulunbuy in a fun afternoon of beach sports.
The girls participated in games of cricket, volleyball, and touch football. The girls were divided into 3 groups, ensuring an even mix of students from each program in each activity. Each group rotated between activities in 10 minutes intervals. Even though some of the girls were unfamiliar with volleyball and touch football, in particular, everybody joined in and enjoyed learning some new skills.
Seeing so many girls in their Stars shirts, enjoying themselves and interacting with students from other locations highlighted how far the Stars Foundation has progressed in just over a year of operation. Activities such as this highlight the Stars culture of Respect, Pride, Commitment, and Honesty.
