Vacation Care Summary

We had fantastic time in our Easter School Holidays! Our numbers went once again through the roof and we were booked out on most of the days. Children enjoyed variety of activities with Rock Climbing, Lego and Circus Day being the most popular. Our excursion to Sydney Family show was unfortunately cancelled due to extremely wet weather. I’m sure we will go there next year!

Our winter holidays program will be available form week 7 and published in BUZZ no later than 13/06.
