International Youth Day Celebrations on St Helena

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 on Friday, 13 September 2019.

International Youth Day is celebrated each year on 12 August but due to the Island schools being closed on this day, St Helena’s celebration is being held a month later.

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
  • Hotdog Eating Competition

Young people not wanting to participate in specific events will be able to take part in other games in the Mule Yard.

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.
