The group has had a fun filled first half of 2019. So far we have been lucky enough to get some legal tips from Legal aid and Western Sydney Community Legal Centre, find out about outings that are offered to seniors from Great Community Transport, hear about elder’s safety from Nepean Local Area Police and had fun with our Australian Trivia day. Plus we have had outings to Community Junction’s Seniors week event, St Marys Harmony Day event, Bunnings Minchinbury for a gardening workshop, morning tea at Tench Reserve and later this term we will be joining the St Marys Historical Society to learn about all things Penrith / St Marys.
The group meet at Colyton Neighbourhood Centre everyThursday during school terms. For more information please contact Nicole on 9188 9065.

On Tuesday 23rd April, the Youth Team took 20 young people to the Sydney Royal Easter Show. We spent all day at the show and had so much fun together. Young people enjoyed going on rides, playing games, winning prizes, eating ice-cream, chips on a stick and lots more. We stayed until the very end for the show and fire-works which was an awesome sight. All the young people had a great day and were very well behaved. We can’t wait to go again next year for even more fun.

The launch of the recreated ‘Yarning Space’ at North St Marys Neighbourhood Centre saw community members and children join us to see how fabulous the space now looks. Children and adults used their creativity to paint a rock, to make this space a community space, a place belonging to the community at North St Marys.
During the project we have had children visit the space from North St Marys Community Preschool, St Marys North Public School, Gulyangarri and families from Community Junction groups, groups at North St Marys Neighbourhood Centre and Penrith City Council Mobile Playvan. It’s exciting to have so many people involved in the project, all whom have contributed to a place of belonging.
