Thursday Island

An under 18’s disco was held at the Thursday Island Water Sports building on Victoria Parade on July 22nd.  A crowd of over 150 teens partied on until 10.00pm.  A great time was had by all with George Newie and DJ Thomas Pedro cranking out the tunes.  

The Thursday Island Blue Light Volunteers had a huge night on the 4th November, hosting two seperate events for little kids & big kids at the Port Kennedy Association Hall.

The under 8’s kicked off at 4pm, with 40 kids and their parents dancing their way through all the favourites.  These included One Finger One Thumb, Hot Potato, and it wouldn’t be a Torres Strait Blue Light without the Taba Naba!  Hokey Pokey, the Chicken Dance and Musical Chairs also featured, with prizes given out to all the best dancers.

The Under 18’s Blue Light was a great success with  150 teens turning out from 7.30  till 10pm.  


Thanks to Cannon Boggo Pilot Hostel and Kaziw Meta College for providing transport to all the live in students, and also to the house parents for their assistance with supervision on the night.

Torres Strait Blue Light kicked off Child Safety Week 2013 by hosting a movie night in Anzac Park. Families were treated to a screening of Madagascar 3.

Blazer, the Qld Fire & Rescue Service fire safety koala was there to delight the littlies.

The night was a huge success and TS Blue Light plan to hold more movie nights in the future.
