April 2024 Youth School holidays events and activities

Get ready for an epic two weeks as we prepare to celebrate the school holidays and Youth Week 2024!

Youth Week runs from 5-12 April (second week of the school holidays) and is WA’s largest annual celebration of young people (10-25 years), providing young people with the opportunity to express their ideas, raise important issues, make decisions, create entertainment and celebrate young people’s contribution to the community.

This year’s theme is Head, Body, Heart. The theme guides the intention of Youth Week WA 2024 events and activities and is a reminder to check in with your head, body and heart, as well as extending that care to others. 

The City will host a range of fun programs to celebrate young people that live, work, study, or visit our port city.

There’s a variety of fun programs and workshops to choose from, so round up your friends and get ready for some fun this school holiday.
