Beat the school holiday boredom

FOR the next two weeks, Bundaberg parents may be tearing their hair out to occupy their children during the school holidays.

Fortunately, a number of community groups have scheduled activities throughout the next two weeks to entertain the little tykes.

Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (Brag) marketing officer Chloe Camilleri said there were two different workshops with a number of sessions that would run over the school holidays.

“In the first week we have material magic and that's looking at tie-dying with non-toxic, environmentally friendly die,” she said.

“In the second week it's a print-making party that's teaching about the techniques of hand print-making.”

The workshops are for children aged between six and 16 and bookings are essential if you wish to participate.

For those children who are more athletic, the Bundaberg Celtics are holding basketball workshops at the YMCA Bundaberg.

Celtics player Anthony Parry said the workshops would be suitable for a wide range of skills, including beginners.

“They'll be learning all the skills involved in basketball and then breaking for a morning tea of fresh fruit,” he said.

The clinics will run on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday next week from 9.15am to 11.45am.
