On average, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians die 10–17 years younger than non-Indigenous Australians. Indigenous infant mortality is three times that of other Australians.
This is a reminder/request to register for the National Close the Gap Day Morning Tea next Thursday, 20 March at St Francis College. Funds raised will go towards the campaign to improve Indigenous health in Australia.
Register online for your ticket no later than Tuesday the 18th (and preferably much sooner!) ... this is essential for catering purposes. At that time, you can donate directly to Oxfam (a link is provided), or you can elect to make a donation on entry to the morning tea in Lecture Room 1 at 10:30 am.
At the morning tea there will be an opportunity to sign a petition and, all going well, our information pack will have arrived and we'll be able to view a short DVD.
Thank you in anticipation of your support.
