Apunipima Cape York Health Council would like to thank all the young people from Wujal Wujal who took part in our drawing competition last term about drinking water.
Apunipima staff visited Bloomfield River State School on Thursday 14 September and yarned with students about the amount of sugar in drinks, and the impact of this sugar on our health.
Students were invited to take part in a local art competition, with the winners’ work being used to promote the #DrinkMoreWaterYoufla message in Wujal Wujal.
The winning drawings were chosen by Wujal Wujal Mayor, Desmond Tayley, and announced at the Family Fun Day on Friday 15 September. These artworks were drawn by Shamira, Azahrea, Carleesha, and Chanthia.
This activity was part of Apunipima’s Healthy Communities project, which aims to make healthy choices easier for people to make.
Sugary drinks are no good for our health. They make us overweight, give us diabetes, rot our teeth and make us sick. That’s why we say, Sugary Drinks Proper No Good!
Water is the best drink for everyone, but a lot of us don’t drink enough water. All we used to drink was water - it’s what we’ve drunk since the beginning of time. So let’s all give diabetes, sickness and chronic disease the boot, and Drink More Water Youfla!
