School holiday fun

SCHOOL holiday fun has well and truly kicked in, with youngsters beating the boredom in force.

Many activities around town have reported great attendance, with more than 600 people turning up to the Bundy Bowl and Leisure Complex each day.

Bundy Bowl owner Peter McElligott said it was great to see the influx of students.

“It's been one of our busiest starts of the September school holidays in many years,” he said.

Creative children also spent their time taking advantage of art workshops.

Colouring in and cookie design sessions will run at Hinkler Central this week, which has already attracted dozens of children.

Bundy Thunder entrants will host the workshop between 10am and 2pm. Entrant Tiffany Elsworth, 17, said parents were welcome to drop their children off while they did their shopping.

“All raised funds will go to the Leukaemia Foundation, so it's for a great cause,” she said.

The Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) is holding children's art activities over the holidays.

This week has already booked out, but spaces are available for some printmaking party sessions next week.

Parents and kids can also prepare for the inaugural NewsMail children's CRUSH day on Friday, October 1.

Families can take advantage of activities including a pirate adventure at the Bundaberg Library, creating pressed car cans at BRAG and a free movie at the Moncrieff Theatre.
