A netball group which aims to improve the educational experience of Aboriginal girls marked the end of a year of disruption and challenge at its awards night a few days before Christmas.

More than 1000 people attended the Shooting Stars event, coming from all over the State, including young achievers from Carnarvon, Meekatharra and Mullewa who maintain a 90 per cent attendance throughout the year.

Shooting Stars executive officer Fran Haintz said the awards nights allowed participants, program co-ordinators, family and friends of Shooting Stars to celebrate what had been achieved in 2020.

“The awards nights gave our participants and staff a chance to reflect on the year and everything that was achieved,” she said.

Shooting Stars will be back in February, and Ms Haintz said she was excited to see what the new year would hold for the group and its eager participants.
