THE Gunnedah PCYC has been recognised for a strong year at a recent awards ceremony in Rooty Hill.
The awards centred around programs and performances of clubs from across the state and saw the local team’s out of hours school care (OOSH) take out the top hounour.
“We were lucky enough to take home the PCYC OOSH Club of the year 2018,” Gunnedah PCYC member Michelle Gosper said.
“Our program was up against 64 others in the state and we were really pleased to take home the top prize making our program the best in the state.”
Gunnedah’s OOSH program also took out the award for highest occupancy for the NSW western region.
“This award was also very pleasing for us as a team,” Ms Gosper said.
“At this same point last year we didn’t have a program, so this has been a big turnaround for us.
“Our program has continued to grow and allowed us to offer more places over the last year and it really is a good reward for a lot of hard work from the whole team.”
Club manager Andrew Formann was also recongnised on the night, taking home the PCYC OOSH supportive manager award.
“Andrew is a really deserving winner,” Ms Gosper said.
“He has put in a lot of effort over the past year and has really helped shape our OOSH program.
“It really is an apt award for him to take home because he is always so supportive of everyone here at the Gunnedah PCYC.”
The club will now turn its attention to hosting an OOSH program for the up coming school holidays.
“Once again we will have a variety of activities throughout the school holidays,” Ms Gosper said.
“For the first time ever we will be going on a day trip from our club to Jump Up in Tamworth.
“There will be all sorts of good stuff happening throughout the holidays and we will be set up to take on even more kids this time around, so if anyone is interested please give us a call.”
