PCYC hosts open day
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.
