Plenty to do in school hols
Hi everyone, I hope you have all had a great week.
It’s that time of year again where school is about to be out for the July school holidays.
Do you have any special plans lined up?
It may not be quite as busy and full of events as normal school holidays, but there is still plenty to head along to and at least we aren’t stuck in bubbles for these holidays!
Hopefully there will be some domestic travel and bookings at local attractions to help out all our amazing businesses.
The Amazing Dinosaur Discovery event looks pretty cool and like it will be a blast for all ages.
I had a phase as a kid where I loved dinosaurs — I had posters, books, toys and all sorts. It’s such a fascinating topic.
For a bit of a guide on what sorts of events you can check out to keep the young ones entertained, have a look at the story on page 8.
There are also some important reminders from our local police for all of us to keep in mind as we enjoy family time over the school holidays! Have a read of them on page 10.
Congratulations to Rotorua Primary School on the official opening of its Bike Track and Trail!
It was awesome to see the pupils getting out there and putting their biking skills to the test on the new track and trail.
Anything that is going to help entertain, stimulate and get our kids active outside is a great thing.
It has also been pretty amazing to hear about the pātaka kai being set up at locations around the community and the great response they have been getting.
This is just another awesome example of Rotorua coming together and being there for each other in times of need.
There is plenty more to check out in this week’s edition — including some photos from Ngongotahā Primary School’s walk-a-thon on page 4.
Don’t forget to keep those thumbs ups and downs and reader’s photos rolling in!
Take care, until next time.
