3Bridges Penshurst Park Youth Facility Visit

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, it was a privilege to catch up with the team from 3Bridges at their Penshurst Park Youth Facility. I have had a close working relationship with 3Bridges for many years - they are among the best at what they do. The Penshurst Park Youth Facility was purpose built in 2022 to accommodate for youth programs, aimed at 8 to 21-year-olds. There are often as many as 50 young people in attendance at their afternoon Youth Zone sessions. It was so great to see the space and hear about what sort of exciting things are happening week to week. They recently hosted a 'Battle of the Beats' competition as a part of Youth Week 2024. This was well attended, with young local musicians battling it out for some amazing prizes. I would like to thank Chief Executive Officer, Raj Nair, as well as Jen Mackinder and Leighton Pollard, who were all incredibly welcoming. You can tell that the team are so very committed to the youth in our local community. I look forward to working alongside the team well into the future.
