As part of Southern Downs Youth Council’s Acts of Kindness program, students from Warwick State High School will be engaging with residents of the Southern Downs region. This initiative was launched by the Southern Downs Youth Council (SDYC) who will also hold be holding free Acts of Kindness sessions at Warwick Library starting from Wednesday 31 October

SDYC’s goals are to foster positive relationships between youth and other members of the Southern Downs community through sharing the activities, achievements and social commitments of young people in the region. Southern Downs Mayor Tracy Dobie said Council is delighted to partner with Warwick State High School staff and students to promote how young people contribute to the region. “The Southern Downs Youth Council and the Acts of Kindness program provides a unique opportunity for our community’s young people to reach out and interact in a positive way with the rest of the community,” Cr Dobie said. “The Acts of Kindness program also allows members of the Southern Downs community to engage with and support our region’s youth in their different projects and activities.”

For the first session on 31 October, tech-savvy students will introduce the basic concepts of robotics, coding and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to community members. For the following two sessions SDYC will host social morning teas and share their projects and achievements throughout the year with the community.
