Spring Online School Holiday Activities

Spring Holidays this year are looking a little different from our normal program. While we can't attend physical activities, we have pulled together a range of creative activities you can do from the comfort of your home. 

Stay busy by learning how to create macrame feathers, a new drawing style or beating your friends at trivia.

Instructions will be posted on our social media pages at 11am on the day of the activity. Make sure you’re following us!
