Hindmarsh Shire Youth Formal Success

Published on 20 December 2022

On Friday 16 December Hindmarsh Youth Council began preparing for the biggest event of the year – the “Youth Formal”, held at the Nhill Memorial Community Centre.  A handful of our dedicated Youth Councillors headed to Nhill around 1:00pm where they began decorating and preparing for the formal attendees to walk through the doors at 7:00pm.  With the Community Centre decked out in colours of blue, green, and white the “Under the Sea” theme was shining from every angle and looked absolutely incredible.

The Youth Council, a group of 13 wonderful young people who are dedicated to bringing about change and opportunities for their peers, met over a number of scheduled Youth Council meetings to prepare and organise this event.  From food, to decorations, and so much more – Youth Councillors had all the say, and it’s safe to say they did a wonderful job.

This event saw a substantial number of attendees – with close to 100 young people in attendance from across the Shire this became one of the biggest events Youth Council have seen in a long time and with a number of good reports and smiles all around. The Youth Council couldn’t be happier with how this event unfolded.

Hindmarsh Shire Youth Council, and Hindmarsh Shire Council would both like to thank Acoustic Box Duo for DJ’ing the event, ZEN Photography for capturing the night, Council staff members for catering, supervising and ensuring everyone was safe and everyone else in between.  Hindmarsh Shire Council would also like to congratulate the 2022 Youth Councillors on a successful year, their hard-work and dedication to bringing about opportunities for all of their friends and peers.  And a big thank you goes out to everyone who attended this event and made it as great as it was, without you all we wouldn’t have an event.
