Pro­gram sparks hol­i­day fun

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

A rock school and fort bat­tle were high­lights of the Spark Hol­i­day Pro­gram run in War­ragul last week.

The school hol­i­day pro­gram run by St Paul’s Angli­can Gram­mar School was open to all chil­dren aged five to 15 years in the com­mu­nity.

One of the high­lights was the High Volt­age Rock School. These work­shops were open to chil­dren of all skill lev­els, from those who had never touched an in­stru­ment to al­ready ca­pa­ble mu­si­cians.

The fo­cus was teach­ing chil­dren how to play in a band. At the end of each ses­sion, fam­i­lies were in­vited to watch what they had worked on through­out the day.

An­other ac­tiv­ity was the Fort Boards and Nerf Bat­tle. This ac­tiv­ity was very pop­u­lar, and looked like a lot of fun as each team as­sem­bled a fort be­fore en­joy­ing var­i­ous challenges.

Yet an­other ac­tiv­ity was Beads, Ban­gles and Bracelets. Kids were able to un­leash their cre­ativ­ity by mak­ing a bracelet or neck­lace from wooden and glass beads.

Other ac­tiv­i­ties that took place through­out the pro­gram in­cluded ro­bot­ics, bas­ket­ball, per­form­ing arts, CSI: War­ragul and Di­nosaur Stomp.

Pro­gram co­or­di­na­tor Christie Brans­grove de­scribed Thurs­day as the “big­gest day” they’ve ever had, and it was clear why. The kids were clearly hav­ing a blast.
