Dwelling on youth


Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

DWELLINGUP Teenz, a youth space for 11 to 17-year-olds, opened last month when teenagers flocked to Dwellingup Com­mu­nity Hall to en­joy en­ter­tain­ment, in­clud­ing the PulseWA cir­cus work­shop made pos­si­ble by Man­durah Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre’s Les­ley Couzens Fel­low­ship Grant.

The youth space, co-or­di­nated and run by Colleen War, will op­er­ate from the hall on the first Fri­day of the month.

Ms Warr also runs youth ac­tiv­i­ties on Mon­day and Tues­day evenings through­out Dwellingup to en­cour­age young peo­ple to en­gage in out­door ac­tiv­i­ties.

The youth ini­tia­tives are sup­ported by the Shire of Mur­ray and Dwellingup Com­mu­nity Com­pact and have been fur­ther helped by do­na­tions from Mur­ray busi­nesses, in­clud­ing the Dwellingup Gen­eral Store, Cara­holly Or­chard and Jarra In­fu­sion.

Ms Warr said Dwellingup Teenz of­fered lo­cal youth a safe venue to get out, hang out, make din­ner to­gether, play video and board games, en­joy a game of pool or sev­eral in­ter­ac­tive sports ac­tiv­i­ties, thanks to the Shire of Mur­ray’s Youth Kit, and ad­dressed the town’s need for a pro­duc­tive out­let for the 11-17 age group.

The coun­cil’s youth kit in­cludes por­ta­ble soc­cer goals, basketball hoops, game con­soles, com­puter and board games.
