Council announces School Holiday program


Bland Shire Council has an exciting program planned for young people of all ages over the April school holidays.

There is something on each day for children and youth from Monday, April 15 until Wednesday, April 24.

At the library children can learn to sew their own soft toy and let their imagination go wild with an open craft session during the first week of the school holidays. During the second week of the holidays the library will be running a cooking session where children will learn to make and decorate cup cakes.

The vacation care program at the Children Services Unit has a busy two week’s planned s full of activities for the children. Highlights of the program include a board games day, football day, a camping day and a science day.

In addition, Council has organised two soccer skills sessions for children and youth.  Both sessions will take place at Ron Crowe Oval and include skills development and soccer related activities. People of all skill levels are invited to participate.

An excursion is planned to Wagga for the movies and ten pin bowling for children 8-12 years of age. These excursions are always very popular and in order to guarantee a spot it will be necessary to book in early.

Council has again engaged the NRMA Safer Driving School to return to West Wyalong to provide one hour driving lessons in automatic or manual vehicles. The program was booked out more than a month in advance, so next holidays you will have to book in early to ensure a lesson..
