Sport, sumo suits and STORMCO at family support

WPRD and STORMCO conducted a sports day to entertain Condobolin youth over the holidays.By Dominic Geiger

Sumo suits were all the rage at last week’s Condobolin Family Support Services youth sports day.

Throughout the day, children had the opportunity to battle it out against one another sumo-a-sumo, jump on a jumping castle, join in games of volleyball and league tag as well as play a number of less physically strenuous games such as duck duck goose.

Children were also treated to free morning tea snacks and a sausage sizzle.

A combined initiative of Western Plains Regional Development and STORMCO (Service To Others Really Matters), the sports day was set up to provide entertainment for children over the school holidays.

Team Leader for STORMCO, Jesse Herford, said he thought the kids had really enjoyed themselves throughout the day.

“It’s just been a lot of fun,” he said.

“We’ve estimated there were about 100 children with their families who showed up.”

Jesse said far from being a one off event, STORMCO would be back next school holidays to maintain a positive relationship with Condobolin children.

“Basically we want to put our name out there and offer a positive influence for the kids,” he said.

“We want to offer the children something to look forward to on the holidays.

“We plan to build on what we’ve done today over the coming years.”

Sports day participant, Andrew Towney, said he’d had a great day.

“I’ve been having heaps of fun wearing sumo suits and tackling people,” he said.

“The jumping castle was good too.”
