Parkour at Our Place


Parkour at Our Place will comprise a series of workshops for young people to learn the art and philosophy of Parkour, a relatively recent development in youth culture which utilises physical skill and agility to creatively overcome obstacles while moving through urban spaces. This physical movement is reflected by the ways in which we can draw on self-awareness and mental agility to overcome non-physical obstacles in life in order to achieve our goals. Participants will be residents of Kingswood, Kingswood Park and Werrington and they will travel to each other's areas as guests for some workshops and host others in their own area. Qualified Parkour practitioners will facilitate the workshops and a record of the various stages of the project will be made using still motion photography and video. A DVD of the project and its activities will be available to participants and our communities. This project is auspiced by Werrington Community Project Inc.

Hi everyone - I would like to invite everyone to join us on 2 May 2009 at Coachmans Park, St Marys for the PCD-Philippine Cultural Day. I promise that you will be entertained and you will be able to taste some of the Philippine foods which will be available on that day. The PLCAA Glee Club will be performing a few songs(I am the choirmaster) and we are currently practicing every Saturday.We are not proffessional singers but our love for music will make up for it. We just enjoy the chance to get together with the other choir members and have formed friendships through the weekly practices.I personally look forward to the practices if only to escape the daily routine of going to work,coming home,preparing meals,doing the washing,etc.When I am singing/conducting I feel like a different person - hey, I could even pretend that I am preparing for a stint in Beyonce's or Madonna's next World Tour.Now back to reality.... hope to see you all on May 2 for the PCD.
