We would like to invite your service, club or group to showcase what you offer young people (age 10 -18)  in the community by bringing a stall (preferable with something interactive) to Roma State College Senior Campus on the 17th August 2018. We expect all surrounding schools including Mitchell, Injune, Surat, Wallumbilla & Roma State College (middle) to also attend.

You will need to bring marketing material containing information that young people and their families can read to learn more about what you offer, times, prices etc.

The more interactive and fun you can make your stall the better!

Our goals for the Roma Recreation Expo are to introduce as many contemporary research based protective factors for young people in our community that include:

Increasing their community connectedness.

  • Introducing a special talent, hobby, recreation activity in their life.
  • Increase school connectedness
  • Increasing physical activity and healthy behaviours.

Participation will require a current blue card.

If you are able to arrive at the school at around approximately 8.30am on the day at student admin you will be greeted and accompanied to the venue. We expect to finish by around lunchtime, but if you are able commit to the entire day (3pm) in case we encounter any unforeseen demand.

Your RSVP to attend is required ASAP to assist with planning.
