Young people will be able to enjoy school holiday activities with their friends thanks to the NSW Government’s $200 million Regional Recovery Package.
Minister for Regional Youth Bronnie Taylor said the past two years has really tested our young people and programs like the Holiday Break program give kids something to look forward to.
“Across rural and regional NSW, the Holiday Break program has been a roaring success and we really look forward to seeing our young people make the most of their summer holidays,” Mrs Taylor said. “This is a chance to get active, try new experiences and make lifelong friends.”
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the $10 million to expand the popular Holiday Break program will give back the fun, care-free experiences our kids missed out on during the lockdowns.
“COVID-19 has been incredibly tough on everyone but particularly our young people, which is why the NSW Government is broadening this fantastic program,” Ms Cooke said.
“Through this initiative we will provide free or subsidised activities over the school holidays including the very popular barbeque music nights.”
