EXCHANGE PROGRAM HELPING INDIGENOUS BOYS

A unique exchange program run at Lake Macquarie is helping to inspire leadership among young indigenous boys.

The group, which includes five participants from Burke and Brewarrina in far western New South Wales, has taken part in a range of activities over the past four days.

“One of the most exciting things from this year was to actually go to a trampoline park at Gateshead, which these type of activities they cannot experience in far western NSW so it was great to see the smiles on their faces,” said Chief Inspector Bruce McGregor.

Now in its second year, the program is an initiative of Lake Macquarie Police.
