There is still time to book an event for the school holidays
Some shires put on more programs than others and the Cumberland Council is one of these. With many events for children during the school holidays, you can have your pick. But remember some of these sell out very quickly, especially as they are all FREE, so if you like any on this list, make sure you do your bookings or register immediately.
1. Cumberland Superbowl American Football will be coming to Cumberland with this primary school adaption of Flag Gridiron. Flag Gridiron is a fun, non-contact sport and your child does not need to have any previous experience to attend this one.
3. Craft at Regents Park Library This will be an event where you need to turn up a bit early to get a place. It is a craft session where school-aged children will make a collage creature which they can name.
This activity will be on 16th January, from 10.30am at the Regents Park Library, 1 Amy Street, Regents Park.
Once again, children must be accompanied by an adult over 18 years old. For more details contact the library on 8757 9066.
This program will also be held on 17th January at both Greystanes Library and Guildford Library.
