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.

The Programme is for 4 days & runs from 9am – 3pm with children choosing some options 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 2021 are:

  • Tue 27th April – Fri 30th April – Registrations CLOSED. Programme FULL.
  • Mon 12th July – Thurs 15th July
  • Mon 4th Oct – Thurs 7th Oct

Registrations are advertised mid-term through Carterton schools and the Council website and Facebook pages.
Please be aware that places are limited and preference will be given to children that have not attended a programme before.

Child Safety

Safety of our tamariki is our paramount concern as outlined in our  Programme Policies and Procedures
