Calling emerging young leaders

If you’re aged 12 to 25 and are passionate about making a difference in our community, why not apply to join the Sunshine Coast Youth Action Group? This innovative Council program is designed to inspire and engage young people and help shape connected communities. The first workshop will be held this month in Maroochydore. You’ll get to advise Council on health and wellbeing programs specific to young people, plans for a junior council in 2021 plus more. Apply here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NTM96Q9 before 8 September.

Get Ready Schools Winner

Well done to St Joseph’s Primary School Nambour who are the winners of the 2020 Sunshine Coast Get Ready Schools competition! What a tremendous achievement.

As part of council’s Get Ready Schools program, primary students from across the region were invited to enter the competition which saw students produce a 30-second video encouraging the community to have an emergency “WHAT-IF PLAN”. 

St Joseph’s put together their Home Among the Gumtrees – “WHAT-IF PLAN” remix. If you have a moment, please take a look at their entry at https://haveyoursay.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/sc-get-ready-schools-competition20.

They will now be mentored by council staff and a local media/marketing company to work behind the scenes and in front of the camera to deliver a commercial for council’s 2020 Get Ready disaster preparedness television, radio and social media campaign.

Reimagine Nambour

If you’re passionate about the future of Nambour then why not consider lending a helping hand to the Reimagine Nambour community association who are currently looking for volunteers. The group works with business and community groups as well as council in Nambour to ensure it continues to be a thriving regional town.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Nambour has still retained its unique character hosting many events including Retro Rocks, Changing Perceptions on Homelessness photo exhibition and Airwaves – the drive-in music festival.
