Twenty-three young people who have just completed Year 10 have also received certificates after completing two years in programs at BYS Mullumbimby Cottage.

Byron Youth Service (BYS) manager Deb Pearse says, ‘There were additional successes where one student completed the BYS hospitality course, two transferred schools and one gained an apprenticeship.’

‘While, as a youth worker, I’m sad to see them go, I am so proud of them, and our dinner celebrated their many achievements.

‘There are still a few celebrations to go; the YAC Is Back fundraiser, the Mullumbimby High formal and the Street Cruise team will be at the Brunswick Twilight Markets on Wednesday December 14 to provide assistance if needed.
