Winter School Holiday Program set to be a hit

25 June 2018

The cold won’t stop young people from having fun these upcoming school holidays as the Winter School Holiday Program is launched today.

A hit at every holiday, the Winter Program has a range of free to low-cost activities, from crafts for all ages, Fun and Fitness in the park, storytelling, poetry writing and more.

Gunnedah Shire Library welcomes kids up to seven years for storytelling from 10.30am on 10, 11, 12, 17, 18 and 19 July, while the older children up to age 12 can get crafty at 3.30pm on 10, 11, 12, 17, 18 and 19 July.

Make sure the kids don’t miss out on $7 movie screenings at The Civic, beginning with a viewing of everyone’s favorite family of superheroes, The Incredibles 2, on 9 July, and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on 16 July for the teenagers.

Gunnedah Shire Council’s Youth Development Officer Sewa Emojong said the 2018 Winter School Holiday Program was designed to be a low-cost and fun option for keeping busy in the school holiday’s, allowing young people to flex their creativity, brains and muscles.

“We have incorporated some relaxing, active and creative activities and hope young people at different ages and with different interests find something that sparks their interest,” Ms Emojong said.

“There is a poetry workshop at The Mackellar Centre on each Thursday of the school holidays for any young adult that has thought about going the way of acclaimed Dorothea Mackellar or for those interested in poetry.

“Or if music is more their thing, week two of the Program is running a Conservatorium Big School Holiday Music Camp, catering for all ages and experiences with visiting artists and tutors to assist.”

Judi Sheedy will be facilitating the Relax Kids Workshop at the Mpowered Health and Wellness Centre on 20 July from 9.00am.
