Samaritans: Youth Week Celebrations

On Tuesday April 12, Samaritans celebrated with the youth of the Hunter for National Youth Week.

A special event was held at Hamilton South Community Hall which was organised by Samaritans, Housing NSW and Newcastle City Council.

The Youth Week event was a whole world of fun with activities including hip hop dancing, a DJ, hair braiding, sausage sizzle, horizontal bungee, graffiti art, aboriginal art, drumming and croquet.

Despite a splash of rain throughout the day, they had a great turn out!

The government promotes Youth Week as an opportunity for young people to express their ideas and views and act on issues that affect their lives.
