School Holiday Program (non-contact)
These school holiday's we're doing things a little differently!
We are offering a colouring competition and a take home activity. Both can be collected from our branches, or you can download and print the colouring competition. Entries can be returned to any of our branch book chutes or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please see below for further details.
Due to high demand, we've just about run out of our A-MAISE-ING school holiday packs! Never fear! We have a new, fun activity pack full of beads and scoobie string to make wonderful beaded creations.
Please be aware that these packs contain small beads and are not suitable for children under the age of 8 without close adult supervision.
