Youth Jump at the Chance to Connect

More than 20 young locals leapt at the chance to have some fun during Youth Week.

In line with this year's Youth Week theme, young people in the Murrumbidgee Council area got the chance to "get involved, be heard and make a difference”.

They did this with a trip to Shepparton’s Go Jump indoor trampoline park on Saturday, April 1.

Participants aged between 12 and 17 from Coleambally and Jerilderie enjoyed the event.

Administrator Austin Evans said the aim was to allow youth from across the Council area to connect.

“This was a chance for them to get involved and have some fun together, “Mr Evans said.

“They played card games on the way there in the bus and got to know each other a bit better.

“Hopefully next year we will see more residents take part in whatever activities are organised by Council. It’s important that our young people get involved and have their say because our future depends on them.”

Those who attended the day were presented with a special Youth Week pack.

Thirteen-year-old Justin Lawton from Jerilderie described the day out as a lot of fun.

“It was good. I really enjoyed the trampolines and going to McDonalds for lunch,” he said.

“The packs were cool. I think it would be great if we could do laser tag or go to the movies next year.”

The bus trip was planned and delivered by Council’s Administration and Finance Support Officer Tianni Given, who thanked the 21 young men for taking the time to join in and help make the day a success.
