Action packed school holiday adventures in NPSP
A range of diverse and exciting activities are on offer these school holidays for young people who live, work, study or play in the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters.
Mayor Robert Bria said the City is the ideal place to spend the school holidays – with the activities not only being entertaining and fun, but also educational.
“Young people are integral to Council’s vision of a progressive City which is prosperous, sustainable and socially cohesive, with a strong community spirit,” Mayor Bria said.
“Supporting young people to engage in their community, lead healthy lifestyles and pursue opportunities for learning, helps to build their confidence and capacity—contributing to the prosperity and resilience of the broader community.
“It is absolutely paramount that the Council continues to seek out and deliver new and appealing activities to keep young people in the community engaged, while teaching them skills for the future,” he said.
Young people are being encouraged to take part in:
