OPAL Family Night

Screening of 'Project Wild Thing'

Come along and enjoy a fun night out for the whole family. 

A tasty dinner will be served at 6pm followed by a screening of the film, ‘Project Wild Thing’, for parents and older children.

Project Wild Thing is an entertaining film led movement to get more kids (and their folks!) outside and reconnecting with nature. The film is an ambitious, feature-length documentary that takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue, the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature.

And Project Wild Thing is much more than a film, this is a growing movement of organisations and individuals who care deeply about the need for nature connected, free-range, roaming and outdoor playing kids in the 21st century. Hundreds of people have already committed huge amounts of time, energy, resources and money to help get the project where it is today. Which is really just the beginning."

There will be a magic show and the Imagination Playground in an adjoining room for school-aged children’s entertainment during the film.

Additional supervision will be provided, however we ask that parents remain responsible for their children throughout the evening.

Cost: Free

Date: Friday the 21 November 2014

Time: 6pm dinner, 6.45pm screening finishing at 8.30pm

Where: Civic Centre, 72 Woodville Road, Woodville

Please RSVP for catering purposes and to secure you and your child’s spot by Friday the 14th November to Camilla either via (08) 8408 1132 or

Supporting Charles Sturt to eat well and be active.

What is OPAL?

OPAL Vitality logoOPAL is a program that encourages everyone in your community to work together to create all kinds of ways to eat well and be active. Your OPAL Council Team at Charles Sturt are here to support and encourage positive changes in your local neighbourhood.

Children and adults who are active and enjoy healthy eating are more likely to live a healthy life. A healthy lifestyle can offer more energy and confidence, better sleep and greater wellbeing. Eating healthy and being active in your community are also great ways to have fun with family and friends.

How is OPAL supporting Charles Sturt?

Your local OPAL Team based in Charles Sturt will work with you as well as a range of community groups – including schools, health services, Charles Sturt Council and private businesses – with a range of projects that support you and your family to:

  • Grow and share your own fruit and vegetables
  • Get ideas and tips about cooking healthy meals
  • Have healthier meal choices when you are not at home
  • Be close to places that sell healthy and affordable groceries
  • Find it easier to walk or cycle around your local neighbourhood
  • Be active in your local parks or get involved with your local sporting clubs
  • Connect with organisations and services that support eating well and being active

Every 12 months a new fun and interactive OPAL theme will also be launched in your community - so keep a look out for opportunities to get involved!
