School Holiday Activities

There are some exciting activities on offer for young people in Kingborough this April as part of Council’s School Holiday Activities program.

A day out to the movies followed by an energetic game of laser skirmish kicks off the program on Tuesday 17 April. The following day we will be celebrating World Creativity Week with professional ceramicist Alice Hutchinson, who is giving a pottery workshop at yspace. Young people will learn basic pottery skills and create pieces of art to take home.

Week two of the holidays starts with the challenge and excitement of the High Ropes Course at Fusion Adventure in Kingston. The following day sees another fun cooking workshop at yspace with professional chef Kirsten Bacon. This workshop’s theme is ANZAC cooking and young people will have the opportunity to make delicious dishes from Australia and New Zealand.

A skate park competition is scheduled for the last day of the holidays, on Friday 27 April. Tas Skate Park League and Kingborough Council are hosting the competition for all skaters, scooter riders and BMX riders at the Blackmans Bay Skate Park. The event kicks off at 11am for scooter registrations, 12.30pm for BMX registrations and 1.30pm for skate registrations. Everyone is invited to either participate or spectate. This is a free all ages event and there will be a BBQ.

Activities are open to all young people who reside in the Kingborough municipality. Activities are open to various ages starting from 10 years. Please check when booking the ages for each activity. Transport is provided to and from yspace for the movies/laser skirmish day and the high ropes course for young people living down the Channel.
