A feast of activities for the school holidays

 26 June 2019

The July school holidays could be the opportunity for kids of all ages to discover a love of cartooning or find their mojo through self-defence at Gunnedah Shire Council’s School Holiday Program.

The program includes two weeks of jam-packed fun from umbrella and banner painting on Friday, July 5, to a Gamers Meet and Greet on Thursday, July 18.

There is a whole calendar of events at Gunnedah Library, with Storytime and Crafty Creations.

There are also NAIDOC activities, with the NAIDOC Exhibition opening at the Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Studio on Friday, July 12, and a Family Fun Day at Wolseley Park on Sunday, July 14.

There are movie screenings, a Louis Tennis Academy, a cartooning workshop, the Vibes and Voices Body Percussion Workshop, a 3D printing workshop for young artists, and self-defence workshops.

Shane Webb from United Taekwondo Gunnedah said the self-defence workshops were a great chance for both younger and older students to learn some new skills.

“It will be about fun and fitness,” Shane said. “If people want to come back and do a session each of the Fridays, they could certainly do that.”

There will be two one-hour sessions on Friday, July 12 and Friday, July 19, one for students aged five to 12 and the other for students between 12 to 18.

To find out more about any of these activities, visit www.thecivic.com.au and press “buy tickets” or call 6740 2100 for more information.
