Cr Baberowski - Make a healthy start to 2021
  • Monday 08 February 2021

I hope everyone is feeling more optimistic as we go into 2021. If you’re looking to push further forward on your health and wellbeing this year, council has some great programs to help you get off to a good start.

If you’re over 50 and want to take more charge of your health, come along to the free Healthy Ageing Forum – Getting Old is not a Disease!, on February 20. In partnership with council and USC, the forum will be a seriously good opportunity to learn about disease prevention in addition to sensible exercise, diet and stress reduction. Leap in and register.

Our popular Healthy Sunshine Coast program is back for 2021 with an excellent variety of free and low-cost fitness and wellness programs for residents to enjoy. Now in its fifth year, Healthy Sunshine Coast is available across the region in local parks and community venues. Try a fitness or yoga session in Turner Park, Beerwah or a Seniors Group Fitness session in the Beerwah Community Hall. Check out the full program.

Finally, I hope all our local teachers, parents and students have settled into the new school year, particularly the little ones who started prep. It’s great to see the new performance centre at the Glasshouse Christian College taking impressive shape and the brand new Baringa State Secondary College which opened its doors for the first time, welcoming a 2021 cohort of Year 7 and 8 students into school as well as into our Division 1 community.

Whilst COVID-19 continues to impact communities, my Meet and Greet sessions will remain on hold, however you are welcome to contact me anytime via phone on 5420 8987 or email rick.baberowski@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.
