Media releases

Local businesses and community groups who are offering activities for school–aged children to participate in during the April 2017 term break can advertise their events for free.

Activities registered with the Shire of Augusta Margaret River by 24 March 2017 will be advertised on a ‘What’s On’ noticeboard which will be published on social media, in local newspapers and newsletters, and on leaflets distributed throughout the region.

Shire of Augusta Margaret River Community Development Trainee Callum Noone said the advertisements would serve as a one-stop-shop for parents and children looking for school holiday fun.

“Community groups and local businesses often host wonderful school holidays events and activities but have limited means and funds to promote and advertise their offerings,” he said.

“A collaborative ‘What’s On’ noticeboard takes out some of that leg work while also providing a centralised source of activity information.”

Mr Noone said the goal of the ‘What’s On’ initiative was to increase community engagement and social inclusion for local young people.

“We are very fortunate to live in a community where there is always something on and always something to do,” he said.

“There is a great deal of opportunity to have fun, make new friends and learn new skills by participating in a wide range of activities.

“There are strong established links between youth, community and the Shire and we hope to reinforce those relationships into the future.”

Organisers of school holiday activities who wish to have their listing included on the ‘What’s On’ advertisements can register their information at http://yoursay.amrshire.wa.gov.au/projects/margaret-river-youth .
