The Shire of Murray has launched its youth activities calendar for 2024.

A stack of activities ranging from skate park sausage sizzles, yoga, health and wellbeing workshops, art programs, virtual reality and more will be on offer for Murray youth at a range of locations across the Shire.

Shire President David Bolt said one of the Shire of Murray’s key focus areas is ‘People’, ensuring the community enjoys excellent health, wellbeing and quality of life. 

“In the recent community survey, young people expressed a need for safe and affordable spaces to socialise, along with wanting to see more youth activities and events in the Murray region. This exciting calendar of activities has been developed to support our youth, the future of Murray,” said President Bolt.

“It has been fantastic to work with students from all the Murray schools at recent Youth Forums to hear their ideas. Many of these upcoming activities have been designed by them and it’s promising to be a great mix of events and programs.”

The third Youth Forum facilitated by the Shire of Murray was held on Monday 26 February, with more than 60 students from local schools. At the forums, the students planned and presented ideas to a panel of judges. The winning ideas will be brought to life in collaboration with the Shire and students as part of Youth Week in April.

Previous events planned by students were held over the summer school holidays and included summer water fun days, mini-golf and virtual reality events.
