Cel­e­brat­ing youth


Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS - Kaylee Martin

THE City of South Perth will bus­tle with ac­tiv­ity when the Na­tional Youth Week cel­e­bra­tions kick off on Fri­day.

The City will host a range of free events aimed at peo­ple aged 12-25 from April 8 to 17.

The na­tional week will bring thou­sands of peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to share ideas, at­tend events and cel­e­brate their con­tri­bu­tion to the com­mu­nity.

The South Perth Youth Net­work (SYPN) worked with City staff to co-or­di­nate a list of com­mu­nity events.

“The South Perth Youth Net­work has again come up with a range of unique ac­tiv­i­ties and in­ter­est­ing ideas for Na­tional Youth Week,” South Perth Mayor Sue Do­herty said.

“These ac­tiv­i­ties are a great way of con­nect­ing youth in our

d451954c com­mu­nity. In­volv­ing lo­cal youth from the plan­ning stages also helps them to de­velop valu­able ex­pe­ri­ences.”

Ac­tiv­i­ties range from hula hoop­ing fit­ness and bub­ble soc­cer matches to men­tor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and more.

A full list of events and ac­tiv­i­ties is at south­perth.wa.gov.au.
