The Shire of Waroona is set to benefit from several grants to spend on Youth Week 2024.

The Waroona Community Resource Centre is receiving $1500 for the Waroona Youthies Night which will give young people in the shire aged 7 to 17 the opportunity to come together and celebrate youth week.

The event will run April 5 from 3.30pm to 8pm.

Waroona Community Resource Centre support officer Kara Robson said the event would have a variety of activities for people to enjoy, from video games, artwork and free food.

“We have the Xtreme Game Truck coming with a variety of game consoles providing an interactive game experience, because what kid doesn’t love video games?” she said.

“This year’s youth week theme is Head, Body, Heart and we have planned our project around this theme.”

A local elder will be running Indigenous artwork classes, outdoor games will be played with prizes to be won, and there will be a free sausage sizzle.

The grant comes from the State Government’s Youth Week WA grants, with the Waroona shire also set to receive $3000.

The shire will run a Youth Week event on April 6 at the newly opened Railside Park from 10am to 1pm.

The skatepark will be the grounds for skate workshops, art workshops and other amusements.
