Activities run by Rise Community Network’s Youth Services proved popular in the January school holidays. While school may be back, the memories will last a lifetime.

A number of different activities were held over the long break. These included indigenous wood burning and a Christmas stocking decoration workshop before Christmas. Youth Program Activities Coordinator Skye Groenveld said:

The Christmas Stocking decoration workshop was three days before Christmas. We had some beautifully decorated items. The young people also got a couple of presents to put in the stockings too!

January school holiday fun

Following the Christmas break, Youth Services ran Water Bomb Blast, which gave the youth a chance to soak the staff. Youth worker Leslie bought in his musical equipment and facilitated a rap song workshop. The young people were encouraged to use their voices to make a group song. Leslie then tweaked the voices to make some crazy sounds.
