The Bundaberg PCYC will be hosting activities throughout the school holidays for members of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island (ATSI) communities.
From Monday 28 June until Friday 9 July, the PCYC will be hosting a range of free activities including bowling, rock climbing and AFL.
PCYC Bundaberg Gym Manager and Indigenous Sport and Rec Officer Marie Smith said the program provided the opportunity to keep active and healthy.
“The program offers variety of sport and recreation activities to our ATSI community members to engage our community, break down barriers and promote physical activity, health and wellbeing,” she said.
“We encourage our ATSI community members to attend our activities to be able to experience activities which they may not otherwise have access to, to have fun and to connect with other members of our community.”
Not only does the PCYC offer the school holiday program but there are a range of accessible programs run throughout the school term.
“Activities throughout the term include Mobfit which is an adult fitness class, Kindygym which is under 5’s gymnastics and a walking and fitness group
which is primarily elders or over 50s but also welcome other age groups,” she said.
“We have a fantastic facility and great opportunities to offer a wide variety of activities to our Indigenous community members.
“We also welcome requests of activities for future holiday or term programs.”
It is important that bookings are made for external events to ensure activity providers are aware of attendee numbers.

PCYC Bundaberg is housed at the Bundaberg Multiplex and offers a range of services including three indoor courts, an onsite 24/7 gym and a state of the art gymnastics centre.
