PCYC hosts open day

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. IN THE WHITSUNDAY - By Kathryn Cy­gan

IF YOU’RE look­ing for a new af­ter school ac­tiv­ity or a fun post-work day ac­tiv­ity, the PCYC has a range of ac­tiv­i­ties to of­fer, all of which will be show­cased at their open day on Satur­day.

PCYC ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fi­cer Sally Archibald said the whole com­mu­nity was in­vited to come down to the Whit­sun­day PCYC at Ju­bilee Pocket to reg­is­ter for the pro­grams of­fered in the new term.

“It’s a great op­por­tu­nity for the chil­dren to meet the coaches and reg­is­ter for the pro­grams they’d like to do,” she said.

There will be a jump­ing cas­tle and sausage siz­zle at the open day to raise money for the PCYC.

Ms Archibald said some of the pro­grams peo­ple could join in­cluded gym­nas­tics and kin­der gym, Wild Ones, in­door soc­cer, the over 50s pro­gram, and bad­minton which has just started up on Wed­nes­day nights.

“Th­ese pro­grams are for chil­dren and some are for adults – there are plenty more on of­fer as well,” she said.

“We’re wait­ing on the con­fir­ma­tion, so it will be worth­while to come down to the open day and see the full se­lec­tion of pro­grams we of­fer.”

Ms Archibald said the ju­nior dis­cos were also start­ing up again next month, sched­uled for ev­ery se­cond Fri­day of the month.

“The dis­cos are re­ally pop­u­lar with the kids,” she said.

“It’s a great chance for them to let their hair down and so­cialise with the other chil­dren in a safe, su­per­vised and fun en­vi­ron­ment.”

Ev­ery third Fri­day of the month will see lo­cal chil­dren en­joy the Kid’s Night In, which in­cludes a movie, and ev­ery fourth Fri­day of the month is roller skate night.

“The open day is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for chil­dren, par­ents and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity look­ing to ex­pand their cir­cle to come on down, meet the team here at the PCYC and find a pro­gram that suits them,” Ms Archibald said.

“Our gym has just re­ceived new in­dus­trial fans thanks to the Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil, so this should make our sports pro­grams even more com­fort­able for ev­ery­one.”

The open day, which will run from 9am un­til noon, is free of charge to at­tend.

JUST FOR FUN: Jaymes Bradley, Stella Dug­gan, Fiona Punch, Emily Carter-At­wood, Daniel Spur­way and Alex Wil­son hav­ing fun at the PCYC.
