TORRES STRAIT CULTURAL FESTIVAL COMMUNITY SERVICE

The Thursday Island District Office Community Service Trailer participated in a project in conjunction with Torres Shire Council to assist with this year’s Cultural Festival. The project was to re-paint the toilet block at Ken Brown Oval where the festival was to be held.

The project has given offenders the opportunity to gain skills in painting as well as exposing them to work-like conditions. It also provided the opportunity to give back to their community, particularly in contributing to such an important event for the Torres Strait.

Torres Shire Council supported the project through the supply of materials.
