Hol­i­day fun for the kids

Auckland City Harbour News - - News - By Maina Per­rot

Youth­town is the place for par­ents look­ing to keep their kids busy dur­ing the win­ter school hol­i­days.

The char­i­ta­ble trust has or­gan­ised a wide range of ex­cit­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren of all ages.

Four sep­a­rate hol­i­day pro­grammes will be run ev­ery day of the week from July 7 to 18.

Out­door ac­tiv­i­ties are go­ing to be a big part for the 11 to 16-year-olds and the seven-plus group.

They will carry out dif­fer­ent ad­ven­tures in­clud­ing a visit to the Wai­w­era hot pools, in­line skat­ing and climb­ing on the har­bour bridge. Ju­niors from five to six years old will cud­dle live ki­wis and take their own bears home from the Teddy Bear Fac­tory in Sylvia Park.

Many other ac­tiv­i­ties are planned to en­sure chil­dren are kept as ac­tive as pos­si­ble.

Hol­i­day pro­gramme de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Mat Osooso Naseri says chil­dren are not only well cared for but also en­cour­aged to “stretch them­selves, gain self-con­fi­dence, and en­joy some won­der­ful new ex­pe­ri­ences”.

She says chil­dren and teenagers from all over Auck­land have shown huge in­ter­est in the new hol­i­day pro­grammes.

“Places on our pro­grammes are fill­ing up fast,” she says. “It might be a good idea to get in touch im­me­di­ately if you want your child to have the kind of school hol­i­day they will look back on with plea­sure.”
