The first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received, or the crisis.
The Boddington Community Resource Centre would like to publicly thank and acknowledge the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development - DPIRD for the grant of $9,120 under the ‘Technology and Innovation Grant’.
The grant has allowed us to purchase the ‘BENQ 75 inch Interactive Smart Board’, affectionately known locally as ‘Old Mate Benny’.
