LOCAL kids will be spoiled for choice throughout the upcoming school holidays thanks to Gunnedah Shire Council’s school holiday program.
Throughout the autumn school holidays, kids will be treated to a variety of activities such as skateboarding clinics, movie days and lazertag.
Gunnedah Shire Council’s youth development officer Sewa Emojong said the program offered something for everyone.
“The school holiday program is designed to incorporate a variety of activities for free or at a low-cost to our participants,” Ms Emojong said.
“The activities are targeted at different age groups and interests, so we hope to see as many young people as possible join in the school holiday fun.”
Kicking off the program will be a free skateboarding clinic hosted by Ownlife at the Gunnedah Skatepark on April 17 from 10.30am to 3.30pm.
Ms Emjong said the clinic provided something new to the youth of Gunnedah.
“Skateboarding is becoming increasingly recognised as a socially-inclusive activity that is low cost, universal, healthy, physically and mentally, and above all, fun,” she said.
Younger kids will also have plenty of activities on offer including toddler time, storytelling and craft creations at the Gunnedah Shire Library on April 17,18,19,25,26 and 27.
Curlewis Library will play host to creative creations on April 16 and 23.
The Civic Theatre will host a Monday movie on April 23 with a screening of Peter Rabbit, tickets for the movie will be $5 and bookings are recommended.
Wrapping up the program on Thursday, April 26 will be an excursion to Tamworth for some trampoline fun at Jump-Up and a visit to the Marsupial Park.
