School holiday program

Mayor Damien Ryan welcomed the NT Government’s announcement of the revised youth program for summer, which is a commitment to better funding and more community driven activities.

Mayor Ryan said “I’m pleased to see the NT Government has chosen to take advantage of the new Alice Springs Aquatic and Leisure Centre as a key platform to the revised youth program this year.” 

“This shows an investment in our youth and the use of a fantastic multi functional facility built for the community.”

“This program has a greater emphasis on a coordinated community lead approach which is a key point of the Alice Springs Community Action Plan.” Said Mayor Ryan.
