Youth Week hit with kids

THE DALBY PCYC have being keeping local kids active, as National Youth Week swept across the country.

Everyday this week a new activity has been on at the PCYC, allowing kids with all interests and abilities the chance to learn new skills.

One of the organisers of the week long event at the PCYC, Shaye Easton, said the week was all about letting kids have fun and be social.

"Our theme this week has been 'be bold, brave you', and it is all about getting kids involved with the community, being social and having fun,” Mrs Easton said.

The event stated on Monday, with kids being joined by artist Bronte Naylor to paint the wall inside the basketball court.

"Bronte was really great with the kids, teaching them how to paint and helping them on their brush work,” Mrs Easton said.

"Bronte sketched out an pattern on the wall and then let the kids go wild and fill in the blanks.

"They had a lot of fun and really enjoyed themselves.”

Tuesday had kids learning how to roll sushi, before being introduced to the fun and exciting sport of ultimate disc on Wednesday.

Each event required a different set of skill for those who participated, which for Mrs Easton was the purpose of the week.

"We wanted to have workshops for each day which focused on skill building,” she said.

"The hope is that each child has walked away from each session with a new skill.”

Thursday saw kids learning indoor hockey with a laser tag being the final event at the PCYC on Friday.

"It has been great that National Youth week has fallen on school holidays, we have been able to engage a lot of kids,” Mrs Easton said.
