From tennis and library activities, to trampolines and marsupials, there is plenty on offer to entertain young people in the spring school holidays.
Gunnedah Shire Council has launched its Spring School Holiday Program, with bookings now open. Gunnedah Shire Library is hosting Story Time for children up to age seven and Crafty Creations for young people up to age 12. Check out the full program online for dates and times.
It’s cheap Tuesday at the movies with tickets available for just $9.00 to advertised sessions. Young people can enjoy the film adaptation of the book Winnie-the-Pooh, titled ‘Christopher Robin’; and ‘Teen Titans Go! To the Movies’ - an animated, superhero, comedy film, based on the popular television series ‘Teen Titans Go!’ Gunnedah Shire Council’s Youth Development Officer Sewa Emojong is excited for the many great activities on offer in this Spring School Holiday Program.
“It is an action-packed few weeks that has a bit of something for everyone,” Ms Emojong said.
‘Gamers Night In’ is a new initiative of Gunnedah Youth Council’s (GYC) Gaming Club network which is promising to be a lot of fun. There is also an excursion to Tamworth for young people over 12 years, visiting Marsupial Park, JumpUp Trampoline Zone and the Tamworth Regional Youth Centre, The Youthie.
During Mental Health Month this October, Ms Emojong said it was important the School Holiday Program had a focus on awareness and access to information about mental health.
“headspace is hosting an open day at its Gunnedah branch for anyone to come and check out a safe space and take away information about what the organisation does. There is also a free Youth Wellbeing Day with a BBQ at Curlewis Hall and an art showcase,” Ms Emojong said.
End the holidays at the GYC Dessert Bar, a fundraiser for the Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund and Gunnedah Youth Council.
Ms Emojong said there are plenty more activities and events on the School Holiday Program.
“Make sure you view the full program and book in for activities so you don’t miss out,” she said.
