Youth Week starts with a superhero dress-up at the movies

The colour run at the public school's fete last year was a big hit, and Youth Week provides another opportunity for those aged 12 to 25 to run the gauntlet.

School holidays start April 13 and this overlaps with Youth Week 2019, and Tenterfield Shire Council has lined up some fun activities to celebrate our younger residents aged 12 to 25 years.

Before the holidays even begin there's a special Movie & Pizza night at the cinema on Wednesday April 10. The cost is $5 at the door for pizza and a drink from 5.30pm, followed by a screening of Captain Marvel (M-rated) at 6pm.

There will be a special prize for the best superhero dress-up, so join in the fun and embrace your inner superhero (and dress like him or her on the outside).

Here's a sneak peek at the movie...

After all the fun of the colour run at The Sir Henry Parkes Memorial Public School fete last year, it's happening again in Shirley Park (behind Tenterfield High School) on Sunday, April 14 from 10am for the slightly-older crew.

Register on the day for the colour run and there'll be free donuts, hot chips, drinks and zooper doopers to fuel up on.  Food will also be available for purchase by those not involved in the run.

Those is not the time to wear your best outfit (superhero or otherwise) as runners will be doused in coloured chalk powder, 'most' of which should wash out.

Once the race is over the fun continues with more great food so it should be a fun day out.

Youth Week takes a cultural turn on Monday, April 15 with a tour of Tenterfield Library followed by lunch at the nearby Courtyard Cafe. Come along to the library at 11.30am to learn about the layout of the facility and get a heads-up on the information available on databases and how the library can help with assignments.

There will also be general information about the library and all the services on offer. Those in the Youth Week category (aged 12 to 25 years) can then enjoy free hot chips and a milkshake at the Courtyard Café at 12 noon.

Any queries on the library tour can be directed to Skye Stapleton at the library on (02) 6736 6060.

After lunch that same day, April 15, there will also be special Youth Week tour and information session at our local TAFE College, starting at 2pm.

Information will also be provided about the college's media wall and the virtual reality program, and the outing wraps up with afternoon tea at 3pm. This event needs an RSVP, so let TAFE's Sharon Tierney know you're attending by emailing her at Sharon.tierney@tafensw.edu.au.
