Gladesville offers school holiday fun

August 3, 2018 by  

Local councils around Australia provided some assistance to parents during the school holidays, with a range of child-friendly programmes.

The City of Ryde in New South Wales offers various events for schoolchildren as part of its Library Service School Holidays Program. During the July 2018 school holidays, some of the events offered included Paperbag Heroes, which offered kids the chance to make their own superhero puppet and fly the skies.

Another event was Superhero Gear, where young attendees could make their own shield and arm bands to protect the city against the ‘bad guys’. Meanwhile, the Scratch Jr Coding Workshop, learn how to make a simple interactive story or game.

These events were held at the Gladesville Library, located at 6 Pittwater Road, Gladesville NSW 2111, and the fun continues for kids in August at nearby Ryde Library, with its Science and Tech Expo day. Held on August 11, the event will include interactive workshops and activities especially for younger visitors, as well as a range of talks and displays. Being held as part of Science Week, the day includes a robotics workshop for kids ages five to seven, which is already booked up.

Flyers and posters in the community raises awareness to these types of events when children are out and about town. Printed media at strategic locations like shops and transport stations will help in community awareness of council programs.
