PCYC reopens its doors
POLICE Minister Michelle Roberts says she was delighted to relaunch the new Midland Police and Community Youth Centre (PCYC) last week.
The Midland PCYC first opened its doors in 1941.
It shut down towards the end of last year to undergo long overdue renovations as part of a statewide infrastructure upgrade program.
Ms Roberts said the main hall had been named the Sue Gordon Hall, in recognition of Dr Gordon’s continued support of WA PCYC.
She said PCYC was one of the biggest recreational organisations in the state.
“PCYCs across Western Australia play a key role in giving our young people a supportive environment in which they can be challenged, educated and engaged,” she said.
“Sport and other activities on offer through PCYCs are a fantastic avenue to build a young person’s self-esteem and offer them the opportunity to have fun and interact socially and in a positive way.
“I’d also like to thank and recognise the efforts of Sue Gordon, who has been a strong advocate of improving the lives of young people.”
The centre will offer an expanded range of sports and recreational activities including boxing, basketball, judo, muay thai, and music classes.
