School holiday fun at South Alive

Having fun last school holidays at South Alive.

PLENTY of activities have been organised at South Alive’s community rooms, The Pantry and nearby park these school holidays.

From passive play to cooking classes, and Lego fun to rock painting, there was bound to be something for all ages, South Alive community development and operations manager Courtney Ellison said.

“The community rooms, The Pantry and nearby park will be abuzz with two weeks of school holiday fun for children aged from toddlers to teenagers.”

The last school holiday programme in April provided so popular, the South Alive team decided to put on another calendar of events, she said.

“And it’s all free.”

This included Sport Southland’s Playler which made its first appearance last school holidays.

The Playler trailer had a range of sporting and play objects from scooter boards to pool noodles and even had a tug-of-war rope, to encourage children and young people to just have fun and “had a whole lot of equipment for all ages to use how they want”.

Parental supervision was required. “It will also give parents and caregivers more options to enjoy interactive fun together.”

A mini Free Comic Book Day with Greenlight Innovations would also be included in the July school holiday programme for the first time on Saturday, July 17.
