Colour the school holidays with fun

29 June, 2023

The July School Holiday Program is packed full of fun activities for energetic youngsters.

One of the key highlights is the free Gunnedah Colour Run on Tuesday, 11 July from 10am to 2pm, funded by the NSW Government. Register from 10am to 10.45am on the corner of Carroll and Maitland streets and join the run from 11am (various start times for different age groups). Finish up at Donnelly Fields with music and a barbecue.

Gunnedah Shire Library will host Book Buddies and Crafty Creations in Gunnedah and Curlewis, with a Dr. Seuss theme. There is also a trivia afternoon on Wednesday, 12 July (don’t forget to dress-up!) and a scavenger hunt that will run throughout the holidays. Find all the colourful characters! Ring the Library on (02) 6740 2190 to book or find out more.

Over at The Civic Theatre, catch $11 movies Spider-Man Across the Spider-verse (prizes for best-dressed!) and Elemental on 6 and 13 July. There’s also a free screening of Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One on Wednesday, 12 July and a free screening of Monsters, Inc. at the PCYC on Friday, 14 July. Free transport and a barbecue dinner are on offer.

Kids full of beans? Head along to Gunnedah PCYC for laser tag, multi-sports, turbo touch and paint ‘n’ shake. Looking for something different? Join free creative workshops from 3-7 July for Years 3 to 6 and ages 12 to 18 and sing, act, write and perform with direction from musician Sewa Emojong and animator Isla Mowbray.
