Calliope youth committee hosts paint party
CALLIOPE Youth Group committee is hosting an activity on Friday night at the Calliope Rodeo Grounds.
The committee has decided to have a paint party, where children wear old white clothes and cover them in paint.
Club coordinator Tina Skyring said the parents let the children choose the activity because parents didn't always know what children wanted.
"It also teaches these kids new skills, leadership and organisation," she said.
"They also have to facilitate the night and do the budgeting for the group.
"The group was created because a lot of families' parents are gone and kids are on their own, and not everyone can always get to Gladstone."
The Paint Party will run two during separate time slots - one for children aged between 12-17 from 6pm-8pm, and one for 18-25-year-olds from 8pm-10pm.
Entry costs $5.
