Nannup Youth & Children
The Shire of Nannup offers programs aimed at early childhood through to young adults. Programs are delivered in a creative and nurturing setting and are aimed to cater to the various interests and needs of the participating individuals.
The Youth Space is located at the rear of the Town Hall on Grange Rd. Community members who are interested in hosting youth activities are invited to contact the Shire office for more information.
After school art classes are offered to primary school aged children on Mondays from 3:30pm until 4:30pm in Terms 2 & 3. In this program we aim to provide young people with the opportunity to explore different mediums and the opportunity to be creative in a fun and social environment. There is a small cost to participants which helps with the purchase of materials and afternoon tea.
Each school holiday programs are scheduled, offering a variety of activities including camps, day trips and workshops. The school holiday programs change depending on the time of year and interests. Information can be found at the Shire Office, around town or in the Telegraph and School Newsletters. Community members that would like to host activities as part of this program are invited to contact the Shire office. All of the Shire of Nannup programs are inclusive and individuals with disabilities and special needs are encouraged to participate.
If you have any further questions, please enquire at the Shire Office.
The Shire of Nannup has been successful in receiving funding from the Department of Sport and Recreation to administer the KidSport program.
KidSport makes it possible for eligible children to join a not-for-profit sport or recreation club, by contributing up to $200 towards paying club registration and other agreed fees.
To be eligible children must;
- Live within the Shire of Nannup
- Be aged 5 – 18 years

Applicants can apply for KidSport funding to pay fees for a number of registered clubs. Funding is only available to cover fees of clubs that are registered for KidSport with the Shire of Nannup. The list of registered clubs is continually growing, if the club you would like to join is not currently registered, please contact Louise Stokes on 9756 1018 to discuss if it is eligible to become a registered club.
