Aunty Jean’s Koori Mini-Olympics brings home the gold in Narooma


Competitors travelled far and wide to attend the Aunty Jean’s Koori Mini-Olympics in Narooma in November.

The Aunty Jean’s Program was named in memory of respected Elder Aunty Jean Morris, who promoted Aboriginal health and culture.

Southern’s Manager Aboriginal Health, Kellyann Johnson said the Koori Mini-Olympics is a celebration of health and community.

“The Aunty Jean’s Program was designed to include health promotion, education and self-management to support and sustain the development of good health behaviours and strategies for Aboriginal people with chronic and complex care needs,” she said.

“The Koori Mini-Olympics is an extension of that. It is a highlight of the year for many members of our community as they meet up with friends, family and compete against one another in a friendly, competitive environment.”
