Young people are set to be recognised for their contributions to the Waroona community with free events later this month.

This year, the Shire of Waroona is celebrating Youth Week through an array of activities for residents aged 10-25 in the second week of the autumn school holidays.

It will all start with pop-up activities at the Waroona Recreation and Aquatic Centre on April 17.

There will be several options available to attendees, including a cupcake workshop, mini golf, giant lawn games, face-painting and skateboard deck painting, all between 9am and 12pm.

Centennial Park will play host to Mid-Week Mindfulness from 4-6pm on April 19.

They will be able to enjoy yoga and meditation with a qualified instructors, and enjoy art activities with young, local artist facilitators.

Youth Week will be wrapped up in the town back at the Waroona Recreation and Aquatic Centre, with a disco party to be held from 6-8.30pm.

All attendees will receive a lolly pack, with food and refreshments being provided by the Waroona Leos as the groove takes over.

Waroona Shire president Mike Walmsley said the activities would offer the chance for young people to socialise and learn new skills.

“These events have been planned in partnership with young people in our community, empowering our youngest residents to create celebrations that are meaningful to them,” he said.

The Shire is being supported with its Youth Week activities by the Department of Communities and Alcoa.
