Change to International Youth Day Celebrations Programme

In recognition of the United Nations International Youth Day, the Children & Adults Social Care Directorate will be celebrating young people on St Helena in a special event at the Mule Yard tomorrow, Friday 13 September 2019.

The event will run from 10am – 4pm for Year 9 and 10 students of Prince Andrew School.

The programme for the day will include:

  • Jamestown Amazing Race
  • Lunch, where students will be issued vouchers for meals, drinks and a treat
  • Novelty Sports in the Leisure Park
  • Apple Eating Competition (previously a Hot Dog Eating Competition)

The change from the Hot Dog Eating competition to the Apple Eating competition supports the St Helena Health Strategic Plan which addresses the long-term chronic type diseases the Island is facing by encouraging people to make healthier life style choices.

The presentation of medals and badges and speeches will take place at the Mule Yard at 3pm. Members of the community may join for the closing speeches.
