School Holiday Program returns for autumn

Kids will have no reason to be bored this autumn break with the return of the ever popular School Holiday Program.

The School Holiday Program, a combined effort of local providers, will begin on Monday 16 April and run through to 27 April.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the line-up of programs would entertain kids of all ages and interests.

“I am delighted to introduce the latest School Holiday Program which offers kids a fantastic variety of activities from sports, arts and more,” he said.

“It’s great to see local community providers unite to put a jam-packed fortnight of quality entertainment together for kids of all ages.”

Kids will have plenty of reasons to keep active during the break, with a variety of sporting events such as basketball, soccer, volleyball and sunset yoga on offer. There will also be special kids SUP yoga classes, fishing clinics and junior golf.

For those who prefer to stay indoors, there are plenty of crafts to create at the Geraldton Regional Library, PCYC and Scrapbook House, as well as a video game zone at the Geraldton Multipurpose Centre, and lots of pirate themed fun at the Museum of Geraldton.

Panaceum’s Films on the Foreshore will return to the Stow Gardens on Friday 27 April. Families are encouraged to bring along a picnic rug, blankets and some snacks, while settling down to enjoy a free screening the hilarious family comedy, Despicable Me 3 on a large outdoor screen.

Parents with very young children from newborn to five years of age can come along to a morning of free activities and games designed for littlies on Friday 27 April thanks to Child and Parent Centre – Rangeway.
