Laverton School’s New Bike Track

Through our Community Development Program (CDP), job seekers in remote Australia are supported to build skills, address barriers and contribute to their communities through a range of flexible activities. 

Over the last few months, our CDP team in Laverton have been busy building a playground and bike track for the Kindergarten at Laverton School with the support from Glencore’s Minara Community Foundation. 

The team have been working with the Laverton School to map out what they want the area to look like and what it will include. They began planning, prioritising the bike track, and preparing the area, clearing weeds, flattening the surface, sourcing materials, marking out and building the track. The final touches were competed this month and will be opening soon for the children at Laverton School. 

At the heart of our CDP program is the belief that communities thrive when individuals actively contribute. Participants in our program play a vital role in developing their communities through a range of meaningful activities and tailored training initiatives.

Our CDP program is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of remote communities. With our tailored approach, we recognise and address the unique conditions of remote living. By engaging participants in a diverse range of activities, we provide a platform for skill-building and barrier-breaking, ensuring our program is not just relevant but transformative. 

Supported by the National Indigenous Australians Agency we deliver the CDP program throughout Leonora, Laverton, Menzies, Wiluna, Mt. Margaret, and Mulga Queen. Find out more.
