Council to run Try Skill Program again in 2018

Following the success of Try Skill over the past 15 years, Waratah-Wynyard Council will again run this program in 2018 with the aim of introducing young people to community activities.

The program operates on the following principles:

•             First term school holidays April 16 – 27 (Not including ANZAC day).)

•             Ideally Clubs run four one hour skill development sessions – 2 per week

•             Open to grades 5, 6,and 7 students from all local schools.

An innovation which has occurred over the years has been to include not to only sports clubs but all community groups in the municipality who feel that they would like to take the opportunity to attract new members from this age group.

It is important however that all groups follow the established pattern as outlined above, involve club members and be  held during the day time at the normal club venue.

Project Officer Keith Price would like to hear from any club interested in being involved in Try Skill 16 2018.
