Through brainstorming activities, games of indoor hockey and basketball led to important discussions about healthy relationships with students.

Six Murgon Primary State School students graduated from the much loved ‘Catch Me If You Can’ PCYC program on Friday, 11 June.

South Burnett PCYC led the Catch Me if You Can Police and youth mentoring program for the first time and it was a big success in Murgon.

The students completed the four-session program, with local police mentors, Sergeant Mark O’Brien, Senior Constable Danielle Gordan, Acting Senior Constable Aaron Hartwell, Constable Graham Lochrie and Constable Trent Ward.

These sessions included intense discussions about issues within the community, the positives and negatives of school and conversations about home life.

The final day started with an in-depth discussion and brainstorming activities about what makes a healthy relationship. This was followed by some team-building skills and games, including a friendly game of indoor hockey.

The group discussed the importance of mental wellbeing and what can be done to help promote good mental health for themselves and others, followed by learning some traditional Indigenous games, and a basketball game.

The day ended with the graduation presentation, where the students received a graduation certificate, Catch Me If You Can singlet, towel and bag.
