Kids can dip into hol­i­day fun at WISAC

Wangaratta Chronicle - - What's On This Weekend - By FREYJA POSTLETHWAITE

CHIL­DREN have no ex­cuse to stay on the couch all hol­i­days.

There are many ex­cit­ing hol­i­day pro­grams on of­fer for pri­mary school stu­dents at the Wan­garatta In­door Sports and Aquatic Cen­tre (WISAC) over the next two weeks.

Hol­i­day ac­tiv­i­ties kicked off with dance and yoga classes on Tues­day af­ter­noon, and were fol­lowed by be­gin­ners, in­ter­me­di­ate and ad­vanced gym­nas­tics classes yes­ter­day for chil­dren to put their bal­ance, flex­i­bil­ity and co­or­di­na­tion to the test.

Stu­dents will not need to travel to the coast to en­joy some aquatic fun when the crowd favourite pool in­flat­able re­turns to the WISAC today and next Thurs­day.

Chil­dren can try their hand at a fun and com­pe­ti­tion free in­tro­duc­tory bas­ket­ball pro­gram, Y Ball, next Tues­day from 10am.

WISAC pro­gram spe­cial­ist, Prue Holmes, said the ses­sions would be the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to get ac­tive dur­ing the break.

“We are of­fer­ing pop­u­lar pro­grams that peo­ple like to do so hope­fully we will get a few kids through the door,” she said.

“The whole idea is to of­fer as much as we can within the school hol­i­days so kids don’t get bored and have some­thing fun to do.

“We have seen quite an in­crease in par­tic­i­pa­tion in our gym­nas­tics pro­gram so hope- fully we will get a lit­tle bit of trac­tion there too.”

Book­ings are es­sen­tial for all ac­tiv­i­ties ex­cept the in­door pool in­flat­able.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to book, con­tact the WISAC on (03) 5722 1723.
