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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org / 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.
Safety of our tamariki is our paramount concern as outlined in our Programme Policies and Procedures
