A group of Year 11 boys have recently returned from a Service in Action experience in the remote Indigenous community Looma, approximately 300km east of Broome, near the Fitzroy River.

The boys spent four days assisting as teachers’ aids at the Looma Remote Community School. They participated in a number of learning activities, helped with administrative tasks and acted as mentors for the students.

After hours the boys played footy and basketball with the locals, swam in the river, visited the Health Clinic and went croc spotting.

“The boys did an outstanding job and were complimented on their efforts by the Looma RCS staff. The boys loved the opportunity to experience life in a remote community and the friendships they formed with each other and the Looma kids,” said Mark Tait, Director of Service in Action.
