We are celebrating NAIDOC week and invite all young people to share their voice on Reconciliation, contributing to a collaborative community art piece and together celebrate unity and diversity in our community.
Winter holidays will have the Youth Centre open as a Drop-In space for young people in school years 6-12. Along with the usual resources and activities available, we will be running activities each day from 2pm. Have a sneak peek into the activities we have planned below:
