SCHOOLS TAKE PART IN NA­TIONAL YOUTH WEEK

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

All schools in the Dou­glas Shire have par­tic­i­pated in the Na­tional Youth Week Art Project, or­gan­ised by Moss­man Youth Ser­vices. Youth Devel­op­ment Co­or­di­na­tor of Moss­man Youth Ser­vices, Sara Har­ris, said this year’s Youth Week ac­tiv­i­ties – the Art Project and Lazer Tag – were made pos­si­ble by a $1500 grant from the na­tional Youth Week Com­mu­nity Grant Scheme. “We bought ev­ery school a large can­vas and asked them to have their stu­dents cre­ate a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of this year’s Youth Week slo­gan, Be Bold, Be Brave, Be You,” Sara ex­plained, “and as can be seen, there are some great pieces here [on display at the the shire cham­bers].” The project also gave teach­ers the op­por­tu­nity to dis­cuss the theme, Be Bold, Be Brave, Be You, with their stu­dents and how this mes­sage re­lates to young peo­ple today. The art project will be on display in the Coun­cil Cham­bers foyer un­til the end of Youth Week, April 9 and then the works will be re­turned to the schools.
