School Holiday Programmes

The Council provides free holiday programmes at the Carterton Events Centre during the mid-year school term breaks for Carterton children aged 5 – 12 years.  Morning tea of fruit and baking is provided however children need to bring their own lunch.  We encourage healthy options with no chocolate, soft drinks or lollies.

Each day runs from 9am – 3pm with children choosing their own daily programme from a wide variety of workshops.  The programme closes with a disco party on the last day.

Previous programmes have included hula hooping, abseiling, sports, board games, inflatable obstacle course, storytelling, gardening, writing, drama, balloon craft, circus juggling, paper making, wood pallet crafts, web coding, 3D printing, cooking, movies, and painting.

The programme dates for 2018 are:

  • Mon 23rd, Tues 24th, Thurs 26th, Fri 27th April (Public Holiday on Anzac Day, Wed 25th April)
  • Mon 9th – Thurs 12th July
  • Mon 1st – Thurs 4th October

Registrations are advertised mid-term through Carterton schools and the Council website and Facebook pages.

Registrations can be made by contacting the Carterton Information Centre: email infocentre@cdc.govt.nz / phone 06 379 4081.
