TAPAC Spring Into Action Holiday Programme (ages 5-7)

Cinna Smith from TAPAC The Auckland Performing Arts Centre

Enter a magical world of drama and dress-ups! Children will improve their confidence as they learn acting, public speaking and social skills...

Through drama, movement, improvisation and voice, children will develop their dance, acting and speaking skills and be involved in a host of spring-themed activities to promote problem-solving, participation and imagination.

Children will use their voices, enjoy music and dancing (building rhythm, musicality, following, balance and co-ordination). They will also use role-play and storytelling to build an imaginary spring fantasy-land!

Children will work towards a performance on the final day, which parents are welcome to attend.

5-6 October
9am-3pm
$120 for 2 days
For ages 5-7

Keep an eye on daily water usage

The Team from Auckland Council

As the drier months set in, you’ll be seeing this water gauge quite a bit. It’s a way for metropolitan Auckland to keep an eye on daily water usage. The aim is to stay in the green and below the daily target.

To see the gauge in action, visit www.watercare.co.nz

If you’re on tank water, when did you last look inside your tank? If you rely on rain to keep your household taps flowing, toilet flushing or stock watered, now’s a good time to check your levels, monitor your usage and look at booking a top-up early. Secure your water future by investing in an additional tank.
