Plenty to do in school hols

Rotorua Weekender - - News - Shauni James

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.
