Let’s Pool Together – help save our community pool

Help save our community swimming pool! This ‘campaign’ is simple, but serious. We have no marketing expertise, strategy or budgets. What we do is look after young people. Young Warlpiri people wrote, shot, edited and performed in this film because they want you to know how important our pool is to us.

The story of Yuendumu Community Swimming Pool

In 2005 Yuendumu Community Council (YCC) was informed they had been successful in their application for a swimming pool through the Pools in Remote Areas (PIRA) Scheme. When the news came in, the YCC was in administration mode and could not accept grants. The YCC administrator asked WYDAC to take over the grant and construct the pool. The WYDAC Board agreed to manage the construction of the pool, and to hand over the Central Desert Shire (who had replaced the local Council) at the end of the first year of operation.

He continues to serve the young people of Yuendumu community and deserves this recognition for the outstanding young man that he is.
