Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

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
