Local teenagers were kept busy and out of the rain last Thursday when they took part in circus skills and music workshops, bush tucker cooking sessions and some street ball with former Perth Wildcat Brad Robbins.

City of Fremantle library and information services manager Julie Caddy said the Big Day Out was a The Meeting Place initiative to bring local young people together.

�A need was identified for a diverse and quirky program catering for teenagers as part of the City�s provision of a range of activities for different ages and interests,� she said.

�Collaborating with the PCYC and Youth Services means that local teens get to experience and learn new things in their neighbourhood and offers an extension to programs run by those services.

�The Big Day Out is not only a great opportunity for local teens to have fun and dip their toes into something new, but also a chance to explore the Hilton centre and see what else might be on offer, even during term time.�

The PCYC Big Day Out will also be held on April 16.
