Is a secondary school holiday programme suitable for my kids?
Do the holidays drag on endlessly? Are your kids whining about how bored they are? Why not enrol them in a secondary school holiday program!
With so many options to choose from including sports, arts and crafts, community work, and even cooking classes, there is bound to be a summer kids' activity to suit and entertain your child. A school holidays programme can help your children:
- Learn and develop extra-curricular activities
- Make new friends
- Stay occupied during holidays
- Keep active during the school holidays
- Enjoy a new experience
If your child has a special hobby or interest they want to develop further, a school holiday programme is the perfect solution. Outgoing kids will enjoy the extra social interaction, while shy kids will be given the opportunity to make friends at their own pace while doing participating in the activities they love!
Children between twelve and eighteen might even like to think about taking part in a holiday camp? Make sure you check with the organisers of the programme if there is anything they need to take with them. For outdoor activities, don't forget appropriate footwear, sunscreen, and a hat. Keep in mind some activities (for example sports and arts and crafts) will require plenty of changes of clothes!
