GAWLER Council has been offering its school holiday program throughout the past fortnight, and is looking to expand the course offerings in the future.
The program has, these holidays, involved activities such as shower bomb making, tie dye, flower headband creation and tote bag decorating, along with some useful worldly skills such as the responsible service of alcohol and youth mental health first aid.
Gawler Mayor Karen Redman said it’s essential that these sorts of courses are offered locally.
“It is important to provide courses that can help position our young people well in the jobs market,” she said.
“For many young people, getting to some Adelaide suburbs that offer these tickets and certificates is challenging due to transport limitations.
“I’m so proud that so many young people take advantage of what our council has to offer.”
Looking ahead, the council reports that it’s already taking expressions of interest for future courses, including national white card accreditation and work zone traffic management.
Anyone interested in expressing their interest in future courses is encouraged to contact council’s Youth Development Officer at email@example.com or by calling 8522 9295.
