IF you’re a busy working parent or just need a short break from the kids during these school holidays there’s plenty of activities being organised in Orange.
The PCYC, Orange Regional Gallery, and Orange City Library have all planned fun activities for the kids over the holidays which begin on Friday.
At the PCYC the kids can take part in gymnastics, court play, card making, painting, card crafts or making a pinata.
The PCYC has organised excursions to the movies as well as pizza making for lunch and many other activities.
Orange Regional Art Gallery has put together a holiday program which includes making a mosaic hanging candle holder, cork crafts, a space age transfer project, botanic paintings and more.
On July 9 the Orange City Library is hosting a challenge for the younger minds with a giant Scrabble session aimed for those aged between 5-12.
The PCYC is offering a choice of morning or afternoon sessions for school kids, catering for children aged from kindergarten to Year 6.
To be eligible to participate in these activities, all children will have to pay a nominal fee to be a member of the PCYC and to use the facilities.
The fee is $5 and covers a 12 month membership.
PCYC manager Geoff Potts said the holiday program consists of a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities.
“Of course it is winter. We try to include outdoor activities for the children as well, however if that’s not possible because of the weather, we have some excellent spaces for children here at the PCYC,” Mr Potts said.
Mr Potts suggested parents wanting to sign their children up for any sessions should call into the PCYC and fill out the necessary paperwork before booking.
Orange Regional Gallery and the library also invite you to call and book your child in for one of the many sessions on offer.
Individual fees apply for classes at the gallery.
