SCHOOL HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES                                                                         

During the recent two-week school holidays, Oberon Council held activities free-of-charge for children aged 5-18, at the Robert Hooper Community Centre and the Oberon Council Library. These activities were a great success.

During the first week, there was a remarkable turn out at the Tuesday cooking class, with 36 attendees. The first group enjoyed making chocolate echidnas, fairy bread and fruit loop jewellery, while the second group made pikelets, and rice-bubble bars. The Wednesday craft class was attended by 18 children, where they made pencil tin animals with Celia.

Thursday’s movie afternoon was a huge hit with over 40 children coming along to the Robert Hooper Community Centre to watch the film, ‘Paddington Bear’. The children were greeted with fresh popcorn which added to the realistic cinema environment – so great, that some parents even stayed to enjoy the film.

The second week proved to be just as successful, cooking included pizza and pastry cooking, rock painting and personalised bookmark making.

A big thank you to Bathurst Motors for providing the popcorn machine.

Oberon Council’s Community Services Coordinator, Kathy Beesley commented “attendance numbers were extremely impressive and the children were very well behaved”.

Thank you to the children who attend the School Holiday Activities. We hope to see you again next holidays!
