Pro­gram keeps kids on the go

Pilbara News - - PILBARA NEWS -

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.
