Young people in the Narromine Shire Council local government area could be able to enjoy a range of activities during the April school holidays, thanks to funding from the NSW Government.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said that the Easter Break Program, which builds on the success of other Holiday Break initiatives including the recent Summer Break program, will continue to provide regional youth with opportunities to socialise as well as learn new skills.
“This program allows eligible councils such as Narromine Shire Council the opportunity to provide young people with a range of activities and opportunities to learn new skills during the April school holidays,” he said.
“Eligible councils can apply for up to $5000 of funding for new or enhanced youth activities, services and programs delivered between April 1-18.”
Minister for Regional Youth Bronnie Taylor said the program would give young people across the regions an opportunity to enjoy themselves during the Easter holidays.
“The resilience of young people was tested during bush fires, drought and COVID-19, and these Holiday Break initiatives break down barriers to participation, providing young people with something to really look forward to.” Mrs Taylor said.
“The Summer Break program was a great success and I’m thrilled to confirm further funding to bring back this brilliant initiative that will give regional youth in hard-hit communities a fair opportunity to participate in and enjoy April holiday activities.”
