Creative fun with Boroondara Arts
Boroondara Arts has an exciting creative workshop program for children of all abilities throughout the autumn school holidays. You can discover new hobbies and make new friends while exploring sculpture, craft, cartooning and circus skills.
Whether it’s take-home craft packs or on-site activities, Boroondara Library Service runs fun school holiday programs that promote a love of reading while developing children’s skills along the way. There are exciting workshops about science, technology, engineering, arts, maths and African drumming to enjoy as a family. Children can also take part in virtual bedtime and family story times outside in the garden at Camberwell and Kew libraries.
Focus on sustainability
Council is running a series of sustainability workshops in the school holidays at CERES Community Environment Park in Brunswick East.
Hang at the Hub
The Boroondara Youth Hub is open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 6 pm during the school holidays. Young people aged 10 years and older are invited to come and play Nintendo Switch, Xbox, pool or table tennis. It’s a great place to meet other local young people and make new friends. There will also be a variety of fun activities on offer including a movie night with choc tops, popcorn and pizza, as well as a cooking class where you can learn to make Easter cupcakes. Or you can test your skills against other young people at the Super Mario Bros and Mario Kart Tournaments.
Bike skills program
Council is offering a 2-day school holiday cycling program for young people aged 13 to 16 who can already ride a bike, but want to gain some freedom by cycling on the road. This program will help young people develop the skills and confidence needed to make their ride on the road enjoyable, fun and safe in both traffic-free and on-road environments.
Fun on wheels
Kew Traffic School will be open for public play-and-ride sessions to help children aged 2 to 10 develop important safety skills on their bicycle, tricycle or scooter.
