The inaugural Warrnambool City Junior Youth Council has held its first meeting.

The council is made up of 17 members and aims to give local primary school students a voice at a civic level.

The group will work closely with their senior counterparts on the Warrnambool City Youth Council.

Youth Council working group member Andrew Pritchard said that while opportunities already existed for primary school students to represent their school, the Junior Youth Council provided a way for them to represent the city.

“The first meeting has been good. Everyone has been very energetic and excited with a lot of ideas,” he said.

“The Junior Youth Council is all about providing a voice for the younger kids in the community.

“It is also about developing their own leadership skills and making connections with people from other schools.

“As you get older you start to forget what happened in primary school and the issues affecting kids at this age, so it’s good to be able to work with them directly.”

Junior Youth Councillors: Kain Ryan, Caitlin Gapes, Freya King, Zoe Bryce, Toby Fish, Hayley Wilson, Charlize Wiffrie, Ian Roache, Theo Kane, Skyla Couch, Charli Picken, Amelia Fiedler, Maisie Rentsch, Maddison Flynn, Taneah Van Bruggen, Jasmine Anderson, Ihipera Sciascia.
