Program keeps kids on the go
Children of all ages were kept entertained throughout the school holidays and parents were offered a few hours of respite through an array of engaging and fun activities in the Shire of Ashburton.
Kite-making, arts and crafts, science experiments, inflatable sports, skateboarding clinics and movies were just a few of the many activities on offer to keep everyone occupied.
Pannawonica and Onslow gave parents the opportunity to let off some steam by offering bubble soccer, Zorb ball, archery tag and paddleboarding.
Shire of Ashburton president Kerry White said even with the rain the school holiday program was keenly supported within the communities.
“Thanks to our partnerships with Rio Tinto and the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project, we are able to offer a range of activities that keep everyone happy,” she said.
“Apart from engaging children in a range of activities, the program is also valuable in providing support to parents.”
After a busy fortnight of activities, the school holidays wound down with Tom Price and Paraburdoo hosting a short film program from Perth International Arts Festival SCREENKIDS,
Onslow had a relaxing day watching movies and Pannawonica enjoyed a family movie night with Finding Dory.
Children enjoy some arts and crafts.
