Curry Knock Out

Curry Knock Out (CKO) runs Monday during the school term from 3pm – 4pm.  The program is an opportunity for young males within the Cloncurry community to meet with local male role models. Participants learn how to be positively involved in their community, and to learn in different areas of life. CKO is an 8 week program that we run every term, the attendees begin by playing a sport, which changes each week. Afterwards, we provide all particpants with a healthy afternoon tea, which is followed by a presentation from a guest speaker. Each speaker has a different topic that they focus on. We have 8 key topics that we focus on each term covering everything from student role models, to drugs, cigarettes and alcohol, community policing, and also, alternative ways to combat stress and anxiety.

RUBY (Rise Up, Be Yourself)

RUBY (Rise Up, Be Yourself) is a free physical fitness program for women who are, have been, or likely to be experiencing Domestic and Family Violence (DFV).

Held weekly at a number of PCYCs across Queensland, RUBY is designed to empower women by building physical strength and contributing to general well-being, emotional resilience, self-esteem and confidence through physical exercise in a violence free and safe environment. The unique program gives participants a different outlet and tools to combat the DFV cycle by fostering connected relationships with other women in a safe, group environment. Sessions are facilitated by a qualified, female PT and a female member of the QPS attends and participates.

RUBY can be a conduit for the needs of the women, and help to create a culture of change and facilitate them to a place of survivorship. It can link participants into existing local services for support, information, referrals and resources and the partnership with the QPS ensures that positive relationships are formed with participants, and direct support is provided.
