Esperance One and All Program begins for the school holidays

The Esperance One and All Community Program will begin again on Monday, April 16, with more than 250 participants expected to attend during the first week of the school holidays.

The activities are free and suitable for all ages, with participants encouraged to attend as many of the sessions as they wish.

The program will start with Wheelchair sports on Monday, April 16, followed by Soccer on Tuesday, April 17, from 2:30pm-4:30pm on Jane Street and Brickclub at the Civic Centre on Wednesday, April 18.

The program will conclude with Volunteer People Painting on Thursday, April 19, from 10am-12pm at the Civic Centre and Beatball at Victoria Street Park in Nulsen from 10am-12pm Friday, April 20.

Shire of Esperance Club development officer Shane Tobin said the program offered something for all ages and abilities, with participants welcome to register on the day prior to the activity.

“We’ve typically got a pretty good mix of community activities and sport, most of which are very unique to the One and All Program,” he said.

“We’ve got a Volunteer People Painting session which is going to be all about Volunteer Week on April 21 and we’ve got more than 30 wooden cut outs which will be painted and placed around the town during Volunteer Week.

“It’s going to be great fun and a big thanks to Esperance Volunteer Resources Centre for that one.

“Friday’s session will be almost an unofficial opening of the Victoria Street basketball court.

“We’ll be playing music and having relatively short basketball games but it will be lots of fun.”

The Program is the product of a joint partnership between the Shire of Esperance, BOICO and Escare. 

Registration forms are available from www.esperance.wa.gov.au and in the foyer of the Bay of Isles Leisure Centre and can be returned via the centre’s letterbox.

Healthy snacks and drinks will be provided.

Participants are advised to ‘slip, slop, slap’ for outdoor activities.
