3Bridges Youthzone

Mr MARK COURE (OatleyMinister for Multiculturalism, and Minister for Seniors)

——Speaker, I rise to congratulate the 3Bridges YouthZone team on receiving an important funding investment from the NSW Government. Anyone who has visited the 3Bridges YouthZone in Hurstville would know the excitement surrounding their beloved pool tables. Thanks to a discretionary grant from former Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, 3Bridges has received much needed funding to re-surface and repair one of these pool tables. These pool tables are used for tournaments between staff and visitors as well as friendly game play. It was an honour to head over to the YouthZone centre to meet with the team to announce the funding. I want to thank Chief Executive Officer, Raj Nair, Vanessa Gauci and the entire team for their ongoing commitment to our local youth and for creating an inclusive and inviting space for them to gather. The 3Bridges organisation and their YouthZone staff are fantastic advocates for supporting the health and wellbeing of youth from across the St George area. I look forward to seeing the re-surfaced pool table being enjoyed by members for many years to come.
