School holidays means plenty of activities for Gunnedah shire’s youth.
The three-week program will kick off on January 7, 2019 and includes excursions, skills workshops, cheap movies and a pool party.
“Favourites, such as Story Telling for Children and Crafty Creations will be running again at the Library, as well as an excursion to the Tamworth Youthie for young people over 12 years,” Gunnedah Shire Council’s youth development officer Sewa Emojong said.
“There is also a Gamers’ Meet and Greet; workshops for young people interested in building up their skills; and the Louis Tennis Academy, in conjunction with council, is running a free Fitness and Tennis Clinic.”
Stay cool at The Civic these holidays with ‘Cheap Tuesday’ movies on January 8, 15 and 22, 2019. Special viewings of Animated Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse, Ralph Breaks the Internet and Mary Poppins Returns will only cost $9 a ticket. View the full program for session times.
Ms Emojong said young people will not want to miss the summer pool party on Thursday, January 10 at the recently completed Gunnedah Memorial Pool Complex.
“There will be a DJ, information stalls, competitions and free entry for the first 100 kids aged under 16 years who book online,” Ms Emojong said.
“It will be a fun day for kids and families alike to experience the incredible new facilities we have.”
Gunnedah Youth Council (GYC) has also launched the GYC Drought Relief Short Film Competition.
“Young people can unleash their creativity and experience living in the country for a good cause by entering into the competition,” Ms Emojong said
“Short-listed entries will have their film shown on the big screen at a Showcase at The Civic, and the community is invited to watch the results of Gunnedah’s talented youth.
“Funds raised from the showcase will be donated to Buy-a-Bale.”
