PCYC re­opens its doors

Kalamunda Reporter - - News -

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.
