2018 SHORT FLIX FESTIVAL

July school holiday program

Central Goldfields Shire’s Youth Engage! Program, Central Goldfields Art Gallery and Maryborough Regional Library is presenting a jam-packed School Holiday Program, which will have something for every junior member of the family.

Offering some fantastic activities, the events kicks off on Tuesday 3 July and run through to Thursday 12 July. The Program caters for toddlers to 18 year olds.

Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey is encouraging our youngest residents to take full advantage of the upcoming school holiday program of events.

“We are offering a wonderful selection of events and activities these school holidays for young people of all ages,” he said.

“I really encourage all of the Shire’s youth to participate in the activities and events on offer. It is a great way to meet new friends, socialise and see what Central Goldfields, and places further afield, has to offer.

“Many of these events are free of charge, or at minimal cost, and are a great way to make the most of these school holidays,” he said.

“I congratulate the Youth Engage! Program, the Central Goldfields Art Gallery and the Maryborough Regional Library for hosting these fantastic events and activities.”
