No excuse for boring holidays

Wattle Range Council has developed an exciting program of events for kids in the first week of the upcoming school holidays.

A range of activities to be delivered across the council region will be sure to have something for everyone. Council’s newly appointed Development Services Director Emma Clay said children can explore the digital world through VR goggles and robotics in Millicent, Penola and Glencoe and the green screen will be up at the Millicent Library.

“The crafty kids will be able to build their own wooden plane, paint and design a flowerpot or join in on the dinosaur themed activities,” she said. “Millicent Gymnastics Club will host ‘come and try’ sessions at which participants can ‘have a go’ at parkour and ninja skills and the giant games will feature at Furner. “Families can also ‘catch a movie’ at the Millicent Civic & Arts Centre on the Friday afternoon.”

Ms Clay said a junior fishing competition will be held over the duration of the week with a presentation of prizes to be held in Beachport on Saturday, April 17. “This is the first of many school holiday programs we have planned.

“We intend to grow this program of activities across Wattle Range each school holidays to engage with our younger members and their families and communities,” she said. “These activities provide the youth of our community with important opportunities to engage, socialise and explore together.”

The full program of activities is available on Council’s website at
