A wide range of activities is planned for Council’s vacation care programs for school aged children up to 13. The program will run over three weeks beginning Tuesday January 4, after the New Year public holiday. The program usually fills fast and if your child or children are going to attend you’ll need to come to our enrolment day to be held on Tuesday December 14 between 4.30pm to 7.00pm at Pagewood Public School.
There are a total of 12 days of events for vacation care based at Pagewood Public School – some free and some where a small fee is required. Vacation care is open from 7.00am to 6.00pm each day and provides the children with daily activities including recreational games both indoor and outdoor. We incorporate sports, art and craft and cooking into the program as well as providing excursions as well as special events at Pagewood Public, such as the popular reptile show and a sea animal show.
The theme for January is “Life’s A Beach” and will include lots of craft activities about the beach, sea animals and sea life. Excursions have been planned to Little Dynamos, ice skating, La Perouse, Vaucluse House, Malabar Park, the movies and Sydney Aquarium. Some excursions are age specific. Children who do not attend excursions will have an awesome day back at Pagewood Public with lots of activities to keep them busy. Vacation care will end with lots of water and splashing around as we enjoy a “Wet’n’Wild” day with lots of water activities including a slip and slide and fun games. This will be followed by a “beach picnic” lunch. For more information and an information pack, call Sherryl on 93663576 or Grace on 96666128 between the hours of 3.00pm and 6.00pm.
There’s also vacation care for students aged 13 and above and I’ll give details of that program soon.
