Learn to skate sessions will be held throughout the region these Easter School holidays in celebration of National Youth Week.
National Youth Week is the largest celebration of young people in Australia with events and activities happening all over the country.
Bundaberg Regional Council has teamed up with Fastplant Skateboarding which will travel to the region to host the learn to skate workshops in April.
After the success of last year’s sessions Fastplant Skateboarding coaches Taniah Meyers and Mikayla Senior are excited to return to share their skills again with young community members.
Fastplant Skateboarding strives to build confidence in both beginner and intermediate skaters in a supportive environment, while having fun along the way.
Thousands of young people aged 12-25 years will be involved this year in organising and celebrating national Youth Week across the country.
Council's Community Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracey McPhee said Youth Week was an important annual event which focused on providing young people with a voice.
“As a community we all understand the importance of ensuring our young people are supported,” Cr McPhee said.
“Youth Week is a chance for young locals to share ideas, have their voices heard while showcasing their talents and having fun!”
Cr McPhee said it was fantastic to see the learn to skate workshops spread across the Bundaberg Region in seven locations this year.
“Workshops will be held in Bundaberg, Burnett Heads, Moore Park Beach, Bargara, Woodgate, Childers and Gin Gin,” Cr McPhee said.
“Our team at Childers Neighbourhood Centre will be supporting at the Childers and Woodgate sessions, with Gin Gin Neighbourhood Centre helping at their location.
“The workshops will be run by the amazing Fastplant Skateboarding team.
“No matter if you’re new to skateboarding or an advanced skater there is sure to be something fun to learn at one of the workshops during Youth Week.”
At each location and session there will be a free barbecue, fun activities and local youth-based services to connect with.
