Plenty to do during holidays

FROM a World Cup themed treasure hunt through the Botanic Gardens, to a pizza and movie night in the library, there’s something to entertain all the kids these school holidays.
“We’ve got loads of activities happening right across our area so no matter where you live, you won’t have to travel far to join in Wollongong City Council’s School Holiday fun,” said Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery.
At Helensburgh and Thirroul libraries there will be craft sessions, while Wollongong and Corrimal libraries will host movie nights throughout the holidays, and the Green Team is giving new meaning to the term bookworm with “Wonderful World of Worms” workshops at Corrimal library.
Other library events planned include Harry Potter trivia, creative writing workshops and family movie and pizza nights.
The hugely popular pool inflatable returns to Beaton Park over the next two weeks, while at both Beaton Park there’s $2 gym and aerobic visits, and tennis and squash to wear the kids out.The Botanic Garden will run treasure hunts, craft sessions and garden shows for 3 – 12 year olds, and at the Art Gallery kids have a chance to get creative and messy with a range of art workshops running throughout the holidays.
