Beat boredom in the autumn school holidays!

Published on 29 March 2019

The City of Melton’s younger residents are invited to take part in a range of exciting activities these school holidays.

Designed to engage and excite children and young people of all ages, from kinder to VCE, bookings are now open for Melton City Council’s libraries, leisure, youth services and vacation care programs.

Open to all primary-school aged children, the vacation care program will include a Dinosaur Dig, Sports Day, science-based fun and an excursion to Edgars Mission Farm to learn more about rescued animals.

The Teenage Holiday Program features a range of indoor and open-air activities, such as mountain biking, rock climbing, outdoor survival skills, trout fishing and splat ball.

At the Melton and Caroline Springs Library and Learning Hubs families can enjoy art sessions, foil embossing, learning some awesome circus skills and exploring STEM stations.

In addition, the Get Activated, Stay Motivated program gives children aged between 1 and 12 years old the opportunity to try a range of different sports at the Melton Indoor Recreation Centre.

City of Melton Mayor, Cr Bob Turner, encouraged young people to get out and enjoy the affordable and interesting activities on offer.

“The vacation care program and library activities are perfect for busy parents and guardians who would like to fire up their child’s imagination and exploration skills these school holidays,”

“For teenagers, there’s a great range of exciting activities that will help you relax and socialise after the first term of 2019,” Cr Turner said.

“Everything on offer promotes learning, health and wellbeing, and are also an opportunity to take a break from the screens and devices our young people are so often using.”

Bookings are required for all activities.
