PCYC finds new home for school aged care

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

THE Whit­sun­day PCYC may not be host­ing va­ca­tion care but it doesn’t mean there is nowhere for kids to go th­ese school hol­i­days.

PCYC branch man­ager, Sergeant John Dickinson, said they’d been work­ing hard to get school aged care op­er­a­tional at their new Can­non­vale cen­tre and they had just re­ceived some great news for the hol­i­days.

From Mon­day, the new cen­tre has been ap­proved to host up to 80 kids.

Their va­ca­tion care pro­gram will fea­ture two weeks of ac­tiv­i­ties like arts and crafts, in­door and out­door games, mu­sic, drama and cook­ing.

“It’s up and run­ning,” Sgt Dickinson said. “We couldn’t offer it dur­ing the Easter hol­i­days be­cause of the cy­clone (but) a fair bit of work and money has been spent in en­sur­ing this cen­tre was fully func­tional be­fore the June/July hol­i­days so the par­ents have some­where for their kids.”

For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact the PCYC on 4946 4299 or email can­non­va­le­sac@pcyc.org.au.

The PCYC will con­tinue to offer af­ter school care at their new cen­tre at 9 Co­ral Es­planade, Can­non­vale.
