School Holiday Programmes

It is with great disappointment that we have to let you know that our April school holiday programme has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Our responsibility is to ensure the health and safety of your children and, with the rapidly changing situation, we believe the potential impact that Covid-19 may have on our staff and volunteers in the next few weeks means we cannot guarantee the appropriate levels of supervision will be available to do this. We appreciate this decision may leave you in a difficult position however know you will understand the reason for it. We hope we have been able to give you sufficient time to make alternative arrangements for you children.

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 2020 are:

  • Mon 13th – Thurs 16th July (Registrations open June 2020)
  • Mon 5th Oct – Thurs 8th Oct (Registrations open August 2020)

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.

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
