On Wednesday 4th June teams from Victoria Point State High School, Capalaba State College and Wynnum State High School came together to compete in the Inaugural 2014 Redlands PCYC Deadly Choices Buroinjin Carnival. Buroinjin is a traditional Aboriginal game from the Kabi Kabi people and was taught to the students by the Redlands PCYC Indigenous Community Sport and Recreation officer and Deadly Choices Program Officer leading up to the event. The carnival gave the students the opportunity to learn and share aboriginal culture while engaging in physical activity. All students showed good sportsmanship, great energy, participation and skills. The Deadly choices team provided a healthy feed to refuel the students. Overall champions were Victoria Point State High School who received the Buroinjin Carnival Shield. Redlands PCYC and Deadly Choices would like to thank all schools for their participation and look forward to holding the event next year.
